Former Shenfield High School pupil Mady Villiers took two wickets for England Women as they sealed a 47 run victory over the 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.

The 22-year-old Villiers picked up two wickets for two runs in three overs to continue her impressive form since being handed a call-up earlier this year prior to the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown.

The youngster will hope to continue her form on Saturday when they play once again in Derby (1pm).
