England thrashed West Indies by 142 runs to secure a dominant one-day international series win in Antigua.

Chasing 261, the hosts were bowled out for 118 with Lauren Bell taking her best international figures of 4-33.

Bell and Kate Cross, who took 2-35, tore through a fragile West Indies batting line-up as the hosts slipped to 49-5 inside the first 10 overs of their chase.

It was another extremely one-sided encounter, with England taking an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.

England’s 260 all out looked below par at the halfway stage, after they chose to bat first on a flat pitch on which they scored 307 two days ago.
