The England women's team kickstarted the series with a comfortable victory over West Indies and will continue as favourites during the second game of the five-match T20I series.
During the previous outing, England opener Tammy Beaumont stood firm and notched up a half-century to help her side finish with 163/8. The West Indies bowlers picked up wickets a tad bit too late in the innings.
In response, Windies managed to score only 116 runs, with Deandra Dottin being the only player to get into double digits with 69 runs to her name. England's bowlers once again proved too hot to handle, and they won the match by 47 runs.
