West Indies depart Women's World Cup with heavy defeat against England

England will now head into the semi-finals on the back of a sixth straight victory, while West Indies will return home.

That stand paved the way for a 68-run win, although South Africa put in a valiant effort as they became the first side to score over 300 batting second in a Women's ODI.

On the used pitch, with runs hard to come by, Beaumont and Heather Knight rebuilt England's innings slowly before the former's attempted lap shot off Afy Fletcher only succeeded in taking the edge and nestling in wicket-keeper Merissa Aguilleira's gloves.

"Overall, it will be a tough series, but we all have seen this young team fight before and I am sure they will continue to show similar qualities on this upcoming trip".

Demand for tickets to the Women's World Cup final has been so high that the MCC has released more for public sale in areas of the stadium usually reserved for its members.

Sciver, who had taken only one wicket with her medium pacein the tournament before yesterday, struck twice in her first over and finished with career-best figures of 4-1-3-3.

Both Sledgehammer and Sledgehammer's boss and co-founder Glen Schofield have taken to Twitter to express their disappointment. And judging by some of the commentary in the trailer, it looks as though the zombies are indeed part of the "Fourth Reich".

"We're a young team and it's been a learning experience for everyone, especially being a captain at my first 50-over World Cup", she noted.

Afterwards, she was at least able to see the amusing side, adding with a smile: "I was happy to trust my partner (Hayley Matthews), but when I went upstairs and had a look I wanted to kill her".

She said: "It was great to beat West Indies in our final group game and stay in Bristol, where we love playing. Some of them are still learning their game and I do believe we'll get bettter".

Englishwomen all - are among the top 10 runscorers at the tournament.

Natalie Sciver has smashed two hundreds for England so far, with Beaumont, Taylor and Knight hitting one each, though it was a battling 67 from the skipper that helped the side seal top spot in the group stage courtesy of a 92-run triumph over West Indies on Saturday.

Opener Hayley Mathews (29 from 64 balls) and Chedean Nation (23 from 57) were the main contributor for West Indies.
