England continued their dominance of the Twenty20 International series against the West Indies in Derby. Having already won the series, a spectacular 55 from 37 balls for Amy Jones set up a fourth consecutive victory and the opportunity to complete a clean sweep on Wednesday.

The home side were wobbling at 43 for three in the ninth over when Jones came to the crease but a partnership of 65 for the fourth wicket with captain Heather Knight set England on course for a total of 166 for six, their highest of the series so far.

The West Indies kept up with the run rate in the early overs but lost too many wickets at regular intervals to maintain a genuine attack on the target. The tourists were also hampered by three runouts as they limped to 122 for nine, Chedean Nation's knock of 30 a rare bright moment.

Despite the apparent ease with which England have won every match so far, Knight insists there is plenty more to come from her side. "I still think we've got a little bit more to give. At times we were off the pace," she said.

"I'm really pleased with how we fought back and scored pretty heavily. Amy batted brilliantly and worked to her strengths. And it was about getting the job done with the ball."
