England overcame a middle-order wobble to claim a comfortable 47-run win against West Indies in the second T20 and take a 2-0 lead in the five-match series.

England were in danger of squandering a strong start after slipping to 96-6, with Stafanie Taylor taking 2-12, but Sarah Glenn’s aggressive 26 from 19 balls lifted England to 151-8.

West Indies reached 72-1 and looked relatively untroubled before Glenn removed Deandra Dottin for 38 and the tourists stumbled to 96-8.

Regular wickets and a lack of big shots saw West Indies finish their 20 overs on 104-8.

This was a much improved West Indies performance with the ball and keeper Shemaine Campbelle was excellent to claim two stumpings.

However, they let England back into the match in the final overs, and they once again struggled to make an impact with the bat.
