After winning the toss and electing to field first, the opening bowling attack Marizanne Kapp and Shabnim Ismail both got early wickets, when they gave openers Hayley Matthews (2) and Chedean Nation (1) their marching orders.
Fastbowler Ismail was too good for the Windies as she managed to pick up 3-31, while Ayabonga Khakha (2-22) and Sune Luus (2-25) helped in ensuring that the Proteas have a relatively easy score to chase, led by the opening batters Lizelle Lee 78* (120) and Laura Wolvaardt 52 (68).
The duo produced a world-class performance, putting up a 122 runs partnership, as Wolvaardt brought up her 21st fifty and Lee followed with her 22nd half-century.
Despite wickets falling in the later stages of the game, it was enough for the visitors to come out top to win a series victory.
The two sides are set to be back in action on Thursday at the Sir Viv Richards stadium.
