England have won with two days to spare, by an innings and 120 runs. It's a crushing result, their most emphatic performance in recent memory, and only the team's third win in 11 matches since the Ashes. They lead the series 1-0, with the third Test starting at Headingley on Friday.

Superb work from Jones, who has four catches and a stumping in this innings, yet another five-wicket haul for him. As it is for Steve Harmison, who adds figures of 5 for 57 to his 6 for 19 in the first innings, and Monty Panesar, the only other man to take wickets for England. He has eight to his name, with one run-out completing the tally

That's it from the live commentary team. Hope you've enjoyed the coverage. Don't forget to read Will Luke's bulletin, which will be updated shortly. And check out our match gallery as well. Andrew McGlashan and Osman Samiuddin will also be filing their views, with much emphasis, no doubt, on the performances of Monty Panesar and Steve Harmison. From myself, Andrew Miller, as well as Martin Williamson and Jenny Thompson, goodbye and see you next time. And don't forget to send us your feedback - good, bad or ugly.

Harmison to Abdul Razzaq, OUT, and that's the victory! Another short ball, a swirling top-edge. Jones with the gloves calls for it and hurtles forward, clutches it well, and flings it high into the air to spark the celebrations!

  • Fletcher stays cool over Panesar

    While the British media could hardly contain their praise of Monty Panesar in the aftermath of the Old Trafford Test, it fell to Duncan Fletcher, England's coach, to pour cold water on the celebrations

  • Trouble in the left-arm front

    Pakistan's Old Trafford shellacking was, a Pakistani paper sagely observed, one of their worst ever under Bob Woolmer and Inzamam-ul-Haq

  • Strauss hails ruthless England

    Andrew Strauss hailed England's outstanding victory in the second Test against Pakistan at Old Trafford as they won by an innings and 120 runs inside three days

  • From cult hero to national hero

    Fifty years ago to the week Jim Laker took 19 wickets by himself at Old Trafford as he destroyed the Australians. It took two bowlers to equal that feat in 2006, but the result was an equally crushing victory, this time over Pakistan

  • Harmison and Panesar to the fore once more

    What a difference a few weeks can make to a belittled side. Their confidence sapped by Sri Lanka in both the Test and one-day series, England have stormed back into form with the most comprehensive of victories over Pakistan in the second Test at Old Traf
