West Indies have progressed to the Super Six stage of the Women’s World Cup in India despite losing their final preliminary round game to England in Mumbai today.
The Caribbean side advanced on net-run-rate after hosts India crashed to a 138-run defeat to Sri Lanka.
West Indies finished third in the group on two points to book the last spot ahead of India.
England and Sri Lanka finished on four points each, but England won the group courtesy of a better run-net-rate.
West Indies electing to bat were bowled out for a meager 101 in 36.4 overs.
A seventh wicket partnership of 58 between Jamaican Shanel Daley and Kyshona Knight saved the West Indies from further embarrassment.
Knight top scored with 33 from 86 balls, while Daley hit 30 from 76 balls.
Anya Shrubsole picked up most wickets for England with four for 21. Aaron Brindle supported well with three wickets for no runs from two overs.
Needing 102 for victory, England reached 103 for four in 35 overs. Deandra Dottin picked up three for 30 from five overs.
Over in Group B, South Africa thrashed Pakistan by 126 runs to join Australia and New Zealand into the Super Sixes.
