Right, we'll leave the live commentary on that note but there'll be many more stories coming in during the afternoon as this story continues to develop. It's been a horrid day for cricket and it isn't going to get better for a while. But from Andrew McGlashan, Sahil Dutta and Liam Brickhill thanks for joining us for this Test. At the moment, the Twenty20 series is due to start on September 5 so join us for that. Until then, goodbye.

1.30pm And that's the end of that. The pair have been hustled away, with several questions left unanswered. Not least Salman's alleged connection with Mazhar Majeed

1.20pm Andrew Miller is currently at the Pakistan press conference and here is the latest: Salman Butt has been asked straight up, did Pakistan deliberately lose the Sydney Test. He did not answer, while Yawar Saeed changed the subject. Are you going to resign Butt is asked? "Why?" Salman replies.

"We won a Test against Australia after 15 years, and against England." Can the ODI series take place? "As far as I am concerned, it is on," says Yawar. "These are just allegations, anyone can say anything about anyone, that doesn't make them true," says Salman.

"Definitely we have given our best, it's just that the conditions have been difficult for the batsmen," says Salman. "Every person has given 100%, but not every time can you achieve what you want

"Mohammad Amir is a young bowler who has done very well in his career," Yawar adds. "He is disappointed to have been involved in these allegations."

1.10pm Andrew Strauss: "Pretty tough day. We turned up knowing all we needed to do was to get the job done and finish things off but the atmosphere was very sombre out there. The game of cricket was in the news not just for the wrong reasons but the worst ones. At the moment the gloss is obviously taken off the win but in time we will remember the good things we've done. I don't know if the one-day series can go ahead now but I think it's important we let the dust settle and let the ICC, PCB and ECB need to sit down and work out what is best to do. "

1.00pm Given the extraordinary circumstances, we're going to be around to bring you all the latest updates from the press conferences. So hang around with us for the latest developments.

England win by an innings and 225 runs and win series 3-1 The one thing everyone wanted this morning was for this Test to end quickly and that is what England have ensured. That, by the way, is Pakistan's worst ever defeat. Graeme Swann collects 5 for 62 to put his name on the honours board but sadly for him, this game will be remembered for all the wrong reasons. Fair to say the celebrations from England are very muted but they have played some fantastic cricket this Test and indeed have done all series. Andrew McGlashan has his summary of the day's action in his bulletin, so have a check of that.

The presentation ceremony won't be the usual post-match celebration but stay with us to hear from Andrew Strauss. The presentation is taking place inside the long room, very sombre feel to affairs. Mohammad Amir is the only Pakistan player present. He has plenty on his mind.

Stuart Broad is named man of the match, his maiden hundred turned this game on its head and Jonathan Trott is named England's man of the series. In a series dominated by the ball he has been consistent with the bat and his hundred here was nothing short of remarkable.

Mohammad Amir was the star of the summer before yesterday's allegations and he has been named Pakistan's man of the series. He collects a £4000 cheque from npower and gets a handshake and muted applause from the presentation team.

Andrew Strauss poses with the trophy with a very strained smile for the photographers, not at all how England would have imagined winning this series.
