12th over: England 78-3 (Jones 8, Knight 33) Another change, this time Gajnabi, who starts her run-up with a little skip. Knight seems to have decided that sheâ€™s the one for a spanking. She slog-sweeps a wide one high and into the clear autumn sky for six. Dismissive in its persecution. Then a four, beautifully timed, through midwicket, then a third, smoothed through midwicket again.
11th over: England 61-3 (Jones 7, Knight 17) Jones and Knight donâ€™t find Ramharack easy to send to the boundary, but they squeeze her for seven runs by hook or by crook.
10th over: England 54-3 (Jones 4, Knight 13) From silver salver to wooden spoon in one over, Kirby drops Jones, an easy, pancake of a catch at midwicket, before Dottin reprises the flying Nicholas Pooran in the IPL, leaping up and parrying the ball in the air and preventing a six.
9th over: England 48-3 (Jones 2, Knight 10) Ramharack, long black hair poking out of the back of her cap, gold hoop earrings, takes a crucial wicket. Beaumont was too eager to hit her out of the attack.
WICKET! Beaumont lbw Ramharack 27
With her very first ball of the series Ramharack deceives Beaumont, who starts sweeping before the ball has left her hand and is stranded with her leg slam in front of the stumps.
8th over: England 45-2 (Beaumont 27, Knight 9) Taylor brings herself on, and Knight is hungry for first strike against her offspin. She reverse-sweeps her for four, then Beaumont and Knight knock her for a of handful of singles.
7th over: England 37-2 (Beaumont 25, Knight 3) Beaumont, leaning backwards, body bending like a banana, clips an outside edge for four past third man. Dottin is in her grove as the sun starts to set behind the pavilion at Derby.
6th over: England 31-2 (Beaumont 21, Knight 2) A more positive over for England but not without its moments of nervousness. A direct hit from Dottin, throwing at an angle from the covers, gets Heather Knightâ€™s heart racing, sheâ€™s in, but only by an acorn . Then Beaumont cuts past the flying left hand of Dottin at backward point.
5th over: England 24-2 (Beaumont 15, Knight 0) Time for a bowling change and Taylor throws the ball to Dottin. Sheâ€™s as on point as youâ€™d imagine and all Beaumont can do is push a single.
4th over: England 22-2 (Beaumont 14, Knight 0) Beaumont wants to cut Alleyne but sheâ€™s finding it tricky to get her away. Sciver shovel-pulls her through the legside, not entirely confidently and then chases a wide one with unhappy results two balls later. The West Indies are very happy.

WICKET! Sciver c Campbell b Alleyne 6
A short wide one and Sciverâ€™s eyes light up, she stretches, unbalances and unhinges, another edge behind. She rolls her eyes in frustration.
3rd over: England 16-1 (Beaumont 13 , Sciver 2) A careful over from Connell this time, who pitches up and Sciver is unable to get her away. Connell is keen on a caught behind, but ultra edge doesnâ€™t back her up and neither do her teammates.
2nd over: England 12-1 (Beaumont 11 , Sciver 0 ) From the City End Alleyne, hair divided in two, a bun on the top of her head, a pony tail behind, struggles with her run up a couple of times. She stutters, re-steps it out, then finds her rhythm. Wyatt is watchful, but she strikes Wyatt on the thigh before tempting her into a cut that wasnâ€™t there. Smashing bowling.
WICKET! Wyatt c Campbelle b Alleyne 0
Wyatt tries to cut, bat horizontal, tissues a catch behind.
1st over: England 11-0 (Beaumont 11 , Wyatt 0 ) A tasty start for England. Beaumont cuts Connell through gully very first ball and then repeats the shot ,but with even more style. I canâ€™t be sure, but she might be wearing two shirts.
Derby in late September – nobody could accuse Mark Butcher of only doing the glamorous gigs. Heâ€™s made a major error by not zipping up his jacket, unlike Ebony Rainford-Brent and Lydia Greenway. Stafanie Taylor leads out the West Indies… and the players take the knee.
Asked about the cancellation of the World Cup, she doesnâ€™t mince her words: â€œI was really frustrated, when you see what New Zealand is like you realised that if itâ€™s not going to happen there, itâ€™s not going to happen anywhere, because of Covid until we get a vaccine. Itâ€™s very disappointing, though obviously weâ€™ve got a lot of time to prepare now.â€
England: Danielle Wyatt, Tammy Beaumont, Nat Sciver, Heather Knight, Amy Jones, Sophia Dunkley, Katherine Brunt, Mady Villiers, Sarah Glenn, Sophie Ecclestone, Anya Shrubsole.
Sophia Dunkley replaces Fran Wilson – her first England game for 18 months.
West Indies: Stafanie Taylor, Deandra Dottin, Aaliyah Alleyne, Shermaine Campbelle, Shenata Grimmond, Leeann Kirby, Hayley Matthews, Shamilia Connell, Karishma Ramharack
West Indies make three changes: Aaliyah Alleyne, Shabika Gajnabi and Karishma Ramharack replace Shakera Selman, Chinelle Henry and Afy Fletcher.
England win the toss and will bat
For the fourth game in a row!
Good evening! Tonight we return to Derby, where the fourth iT20 game between England and West Indies bursts into life at 6pm.
England have already sealed the five-match series after their 20-run victory at the same ground on Saturday – disappointingly for those of a statistical bent who were hoping for clean-sweep of 47 run wins, just for the heck of it. Womenâ€™s cricket in England is on a bit of a high at the moment, what with victory in this series and the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy on Sunday, won by Souther Vipers and live on the BBC for the first time since players wore skirts.
West Indies have had a disappointing run over the last few years since winning the T20 World Cup in 2016. This armchair fan hopes theyâ€™ll win the toss this evening and get stuck in, with Deandra Dottin lighting her firework box of potential.
