The series already in their pocket, the Indian women continued their domination over the West Indies women by notching up a five-run win in the rain-truncated fourth T20I. 

The Indian women now lead the five-match series 4-0 after sealing the series in the third game.

In the rain-marred fourth T20I, which was reduced to nine overs a side, the Indian women made 50/7 after being sent in to bat. Pooja Vastrakar (10) was the lone Indian to reach double digits. Hayley Matthews (3/13) scalped three wickets for the hosts, while Afy Fletcher (2/2) and Sheneta Grimmond (2/10) picked up two wickets apiece. India then restricted West Indies to 45/5 in their nine overs.

Spinners rule

India skipper Harmanpreet Kaur relied on her spinners and they did not disappoint her as off-spinner Anuja Patil (2/8), Deepti Sharma (1/8) and Radha Yadav (1/8) kept the Windies on a tight leash to ensure the win.

Mathews (11) and Chinelle Henry (11) top-scored for the home team. The fifth and final T20I of the series will be played here on Thursday. 

The India women had defeated West Indies 2-1 in the three-match ODI series that preceded the T20Is.

Brief Scores: India: 50/7 in 9 overs (Pooja Vastrakar 10; Hayley Matthews 3/13); West Indies: 45/5 in 9 overs (Hayley Matthews 11, Chinelle Henry 11; Anuja Patil 2/8). — PTI
