  • JM Anderson15-8-17-6
  • ST Finn6-3-28-2

Anderson collects a stump and his team-mates crowd around to congratulate him. That was a comprehensive performance from England - excellent bowling, batting the first innings from Morgan and Collingwood, and sharp fielding. So, England have won by 354 runs. And as for Pakistan, where to from here? They have only a few days until the second Test starts at Edgbaston on Friday, but they must put this abject display out of their minds. Their bowling was excellent in the second innings, but apart from that there wasn't much to write home about.

James Anderson finished with match figures of 11 for 71 - the best match analysis by an England bowler since Matthew Hoggard collected 12 for 205 against South Africa at the Wanderers in January 2005.

Don't leave us just yet - we'll have the presentations shortly. Meanwhile "Pakistan were absolutely rubbish with the bat," is the blunt analysis from Ramiz Raja on TV. "They'll be mentally scarred by this performance."

"The first game against Australia was a bit like this. We must remember we won the second game, so this will help us make a strong comeback," Salman Butt says. "This is a young side with limited experience, but they have the talent. There's not that much difference between the sides in batting - had we held onto our chances England would not have run away with this match."

Andrew Strauss: "We're very satisfied. Our bowling was first-class on a wicket that helped the bowlers quite a lot. But we're very conscious it's only the first game in a four-game series."

And the Man of the Match - no surprises here - it's James Anderson: "It's a lot easier when the ball is swinging. You want to make the most of it, because it doesn't always."

That's it from Trent Bridge. What a performance by England. Join us on Friday for the second Test from Edgbaston. But in the meantime, feel free to head on over to our Facebook page to dissect the match. And keep an eye out for all the post-match news and analysis from Andrew Miller and Nagraj Gollapudi at the ground. From myself, Brydon Coverdale, as well as Sahil Dutta and Liam Brickhill, thanks for joining us, and it's goodbye for now.

Anderson to Mohammad Asif, OUT, and that's the match! Asif edges to Swann at second slip and Anderson, who came around the wicket, has now finished with 11 wickets

  • England aim for swing in Australia

    England's fast bowlers will start practising with the Kookaburra balls that will be used during the Ashes as soon as the Test campaign with Pakistan is over

  • Butt keeps faith in Kamran Akmal

    Kamran Akmal dropped a sitter, missed out on a stumping and another crucial catch of Eoin Morgan which landed only a few inches from his gloves in England's first innings

  • Butt not convinced Ys heads are the answer

    Salman Butt is not convinced that returning Mohammad Yousuf and Younis Khan to the Test team would be the right move

  • Strauss plays down Pietersen's poor form

    Kevin Pietersen's ongoing struggle for form remains England's single biggest concern following a thumping 354-run victory over Pakistan at Trent Bridge

  • Strauss urges consistency after England triumph

    In the end, resistance was brief and futile. With James Anderson unplayable and England's slip cordon on fire, Pakistan shed seven wickets in the morning session to crumble to a miserable 80 all out
