Commentary

2.50pm: Time for the presentations, then. First the umpires get their medals - and they deserve them, the standard is really high among the elite group and Aleem Dar and Marais Erasmus again had an excellent Test.

West Indies captain, Darren Sammy: "I think some guys performed really well. We look at the good things we did and in the next match hope to perform more consistently. You saw the way Kemar started off [this morning] but once the hardness went from the ball it was difficult against the England batsmen. We didn't get as many runs as we wanted in the first innings but the way we fought back we can take encouragement for the next match. I think this team have been working really hard and whoever comes in in we are going to welcome them."

Sammy also says that Shane Shillingford may play in the next Test and adds that it is up to the selectors whether Chris Gayle is considered now that his IPL involvement is over. He also praises Chanderpaul's contribution: "That's something we're used to with Shiv, his experience in the dressing room helps the youngsters. He loves playing in England, he doesn't get out in England."

England captain Andrew Strauss: "We felt that the wicket was pretty flat and we had a good chance of getting the target but you never know and we put ourselves in a tricky position last night. I thought the wicket would flatten out and Alastair Cook and Ian Bell went about getting the runs in a sensible, civilised way. When you have to dig a bit deeper to get over the line it makes it that bit more satisfying. It was a good run out, we'll have to see how everyone is feeling before the next Test. It was nice to get that hundred and when you do it in a winning cause it makes it more special. Ian Bell has been playing brilliantly for a long time and it was just a case of him reconnecting with his method and he showed how good he is."

England's Stuart Broad is named Man of the Match: "Winning the toss and bowling puts a bit of pressure on the bowling group but we never expected it to be a 100-all-out wicket. I think all the bowlers found we just got into it throughout the first day and to have them nine down for 240-odd was a great effort. We had to work very hard for this victory. It's obviously pleasing to get on all three honours boards - particularly as my dad didn't get on the batting one - but winning Test matches is the most important thing. Jimmy likes bowling from the Pavilion End, he gets the choice but I found a good rythm from the Nursery End. It's all about mentally and physically preparing for the next Test now."

And that brings the curtain down on a fascinating Test, a really good start to the English summer and a match to remember for the likes of Andrew Strauss and Stuart Broad, Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Kemar Roach. We'll be back to hum the tune for the second Test, starting on Friday, with our cap in hand, asking: "Please sir, can we have some more?" See you then, ta ra!

2.40pm: So, with victory England take a 1-0 lead in the series. It's the result most had predicted but the journey there took an unexpectedly scenic route (although I suppose that description depends on how much you enjoy watching Shiv Chanderpaul bat). Before the Test, Ottis Gibson, the West Indies coach, said he wanted his team to improve on their last visit to Lord's, which was over inside three days, and they certainly managed that. It may have ended in the cliched "noble defeat" but there is genuine reason to be encouraged about West Indies' progress. The real test is whether they can take what they've learned from this game and push England even harder at Trent Bridge.

Samuels to Bell, FOUR runs, tossed up and driven crisply through midwicket , that'll do it. England are rocking and rolling, rather than just rocking - they've won by five wickets

Sammy to Bairstow, no run, length ball, seams back a touch, Bairstow is hit on the pad - and Sammy, with a smile on his face, asks to review the not out decision! He was probably hit outside the line and there was an inside edge too, and West Indies have used up their last review. Could be crucial

Out comes Bairstow, two needed ...

Sammy to Cook, OUT, oh, gone! Cook tried to finish things with another hack through his favoured scoring area but it flew off the edge and was caught low at gully. Disastrous collapse ahoy!

Sammy to Bell, 1 run, length ball outside the line of off, stays back and dabs one short of cover-point again
