Abject West Indies tumble to humiliating innings defeat

A historic Test match was dealt a humiliating conclusion under the Edgbaston floodlights, as West Indies crumbled to one of the most spineless defeats in their long and once-proud history

Commentary

Scorer: Sanjay Murari | Commentator: Andrew McGlashan

England win by an innings and 209 runs, that's crushing in any language. Not quite West Indies' worst, though. Job done for England and in very fine style, set up by the double hundred from Alastair Cook and century for Joe Root. Then the bowlers basically had to put the ball in roughly the right area and it was enough to blow West Indies away twice - 19 wickets fell today, the first time West Indies have lost that many in a day. First time England have won three Tests in a row since the India series in 2014. Can West Indies stop it becoming five in a row? I will bring you the presentations shortly.

Jason Holder "It's very disappointing, we were totally outplayed and didn't show any fight. We've just got to believe, we need to use the days off wisely. It's not impossible, we can't drop our heads. The series isn't lost. I felt we were in the game in the first session but Cook and Root put on a great partnership. I was pleased for Jermaine, the way he played was positive and we want to encourage him to keep doing it. Hopefully Shannon can be ready for the next Test."

Joe Root "A very remarkable day, very pleasing. We talk about being ruthless. We held a really good length and made them play a lot. I'm sure there's plenty more in the tank for Stuart, it's a day he'll remember for a long time. He has those spells in him that can turn a game. He's very skillful. As a whole squad we are always looking to improve and it's great to see the senior guys doing that. It's been a great week, exciting and a bit different and we'll see where [day-night Tests] go in the future."

The Man of the Match goes to Alastair Cook "It's nice to turn up to a ground where your highest score is. It's all about opportunity, that South Africa series I can remember four pitches doing so much. This was a good toss to win and no matter what colour of the ball when the sun out this is a good place to bat. I went into the SA series on the back of good runs, but it didn't quite happen. You do doubt yourself but experience keeps you grounded. I felt I was moving pretty well so it's nice to cash in here. I've really enjoyed the summer so far."

Stuart Broad on passing Ian Botham. "It's very special, he's a hero of mine and gave me my Test cap. Very special to be stood by him now. They add up pretty quickly, there have been some great memories. But you remember the matches you win, not the wickets you take. It's a very special day today with the family, but it's the series wins you remember."

That just about wraps things up for this match. We'll be back on Friday for the second Test at Headingley but for now, from Andrew and Alan, it's goodbye and thanks for joining us.

Roland-Jones to Joseph, OUT, edged to slip, and that's the win to England. In the channel outside off, excellent line, the outside edge carries low to Stokes who grabs it down to his right

AS Joseph c Stokes b Roland-Jones 8 (38m 24b 1x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Shane: "This kind of spineless display from Windies can't bring anyone any joy, even the most die-hard England supporter. I can't help but feel a tinge of sadness when I listen to Michael Holding commentating and thinking of how the Windies used to be."

Roland-Jones to Joseph, no run, a waft outside off stump, a couple of the slips though there was an edge

Roland-Jones to Joseph, no run, edged, but doesn't quite reach Anderson at fourth slip...was a full ball which he drove at, slicing across the ball

Roland-Jones to Joseph, no run, length ball outside off, defended to cover

Tony Fisher: "This Windies side is an utter embarrassment. We should give a test to Afghanistan instead: they couldn't be worse and at least they'd show some pride and fight."

Anderson to Cummins, no run, full and straight, he gets behind the line and plays to the bowler

One to go for England...you thought it may be an outside chance of 19 wickets in a day, but still

Anderson to Roach, OUT, that does the job, full and straight. Very similar to the first-innings dismissal, Roach misses his drive and the stumps are clattered

KAJ Roach b Anderson 12 (47m 33b 2x4 0x6) SR: 36.36
