LAUREN WINFIELD-HILL marked her international return with a near run-a-ball 15 as England Women thrashed West Indies by eight wickets in their first T20.

Winfield-Hill scored 15 runs from 14 balls, hitting two fours from her 27-minute spell at the crease at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua.

Batting alongside Danni Wyatt, the Stamford Bridge batter was run out by Shemaine Campbelle on her first T20I appearance since February 2020.

Wyatt and Northern Diamonds' Nat Sciver finished on 59 and three not out respectively, taking England to the winning line of 106-2 with 44 balls remaining.

Earlier, West Indies had been restricted to 105-7 from their 20 overs.

Winfield-Hill's catch from the bowling of stand-out attack leader Lauren Bell (3-26) saw Campbelle depart for 10.

Sciver (1-17) dismissed number three Kycia Knight for a duck while fellow Diamonds star Katherine Brunt (1-20) bowled opener and captain Hayley Matthews, who had reached seven.

England continue their five-match T20I series at Bridgetown's Kensington Oval on Wednesday (10pm UK time).

Elsewhere, Yorkshire opener Adam Lyth has signed for reigning Big Bash League champions Perth Scorchers for the first half of the competition.

Former Test batter Lyth replaces England international Phil Salt, who is out with a shoulder injury, and will compete in the BBL for the first time.

Perth kick off their title defence on Saturday at home to Sydney Sixers (8am UK time).
