Commentary

Well, we shall have the full reaction from a disconsolate England camp over the coming hours. First up will be Andrew Miller's bulletin, followed by quotes from the leading players and a verdict from our man at the ground. Keep an eye on the series page (or RSS) and whatever you do, don't forget to join us for the second Test on Friday. I'm Will Luke and, along with Andrew Miller, hope you've enjoyed our coverage of what's been an extraordinary Test. Until Friday, it's goodnight.

Here's Chris Gayle, with a smile as wide as ever. "Brilliant day. It's come full circle. Sarwan batted really well, Nash batted well and everyone else chipped in. Benn bowled brilliantly, but Taylor picking up five was [superb]. It's good to see our allround cricket improving. The support was tremendous here, as ever. Hopefully we can move on from strength to strength.

"We'll definitely go for a drink tonight, but we won't over-do it. We'll enjoy it though."

Strauss: "We were entirely outplayed by a very good WI side. We've not done outselves justice. Our bowlers stuck to the task well but we batted very, very poorly today and paid the price."

"Now's not the time to be too hasty on these things. We haven't played well. As a batting unit, there's very little positive to come out of this Test. We have to take it on the chin and move on."

It's been so long that West Indies' fans have had cause to cheer this long and hard, and the players - who, to be honest, look shell-shocked - are walking around a sun-baked ground to wave to the supporters. An outstanding allround performance from a team which - whisper it - might have turned the corner.

England, though, are disconsolate. It's their third-lowest Test total (their second-lowest of 46 came here in the Caribbean in 1994) and today their batsmen have lacked application and intent, against Jerome Taylor whose 5 for 11 won't be forgotten for a while.

Well, what a breathless, brilliant day of Test cricket for West Indies who win by an innings-and-23-runs. Gayle receives handshakes (and a hug) from Pietersen and then salutes the crowd who, to a man, are standing and applauding this rare win at Sabina Park. It's just pure elation for West Indies out there - almost disbelief.

Benn to Harmison, OUT, bowled him! He went for a sweep and dragged it on - and West Indies record a quite brilliant victory

Edwards to Panesar, no run, ooh well bowled! An inswinging brute which is dug out

Edwards to Panesar, no run, but it's wide and left alone

England still 23 runs behind with one wicket remaining. Panesar versus Edwards and Sabina Park is about to explode

It's very nearly party time for West Indies

32.3
W
Edwards to Flintoff, OUT, BOWLED HIM! Well, you have to say it was almost inevitable. Flintoff was lining himself up to carve Edwards either inside out over point, or over midwicket. He tried to go over midwicket and was bowled by a decent, fast, full delivery
