West Indies opener Deandra Dottin hit 63 from 56 balls, but Katherine Brunt and Sarah Glenn took two wickets apiece as a West Indies side that shuffled their batting order following two heavy defeats were restricted to 134-5 under lights.

The limelight belonged to Sciver, who also chipped in with one for 23, as she clubbed nine fours and a six, sharing half-century stands with Heather Knight and Fran Wilson.

England took 38 runs from the last three overs on a blustery, cool and cloudy afternoon.

The West Indies used eight bowlers but were unable to stop Sciver until the final over and the tourists will now only be playing for pride after losing the first three games in the five-match series.
