Rain plays a spoil sport again; England Women win the T20 series 1-0 against West Indies

After having clinched the ODI series 3-0, England Women would have liked to clean sweep the visiting West Indies in the three-match T20 series as well. However one thing that was standing strong between England and the T20 series clean sweep was the rain. Out of the three T20s that were scheduled, the two sides could play just one, with other two being washed out. England won the second T20 to take an unassailable lead of 1-0.

On Tuesday, the third T20 at Derby was washed out without a ball being bowled as the rain was pelting. This British summer has rather tured out to be a disappointing affair for the cricket lovers across world. With four of the men’s World Cup matches being washed out and two of the women’s matches being abandoned, rain has absolutely been a spoiler.
