Losing end*

Trinidad Express / West Indies squandered the ideal opportunity to end their disappointing ICC Women’s World Cup campaign on a high when they crashed to a 92-run defeat to hosts England in their final match yesterday. The Caribbean unit, led by the exceptional leg-spinner Afy Fletcher, managed to restrict England to 220 for seven off 50 overs at the Gloucestershire County Ground but their batsmen let them down badly and they collapsed to 128 for nine, slumping to their fifth defeat in seven matches. Opting to bowl, the Windies spinners did the job on a slow, turning pitch, and only captain Heather Knight with a top score of 67 and Tammy Beaumont, 42, managed to show enterprise. Laura Marsh, batting at number nine, chipped in with a valuable unbeaten 31 while veteran Jenny Gunn scored 24 not out. Fletcher was excellent, taking three for 33 from her 10 overs while off-spinner Anisa Mohammed also proved stingy, conceding just 32 runs from her 10 overs.
