Andrew Miller is scripting a bulletin, so do have a look if you missed any of the action. We'll have a full package and reaction available on our series homepage, so keep your eyes peeled. With that win, England go to fifth in the rankings - up one place. We hope you've enjoyed our coverage in this brief little series. We'll be back for the one-dayers, of course, followed by the ICC World Twenty20. And then? Well it's the Ashes, in case you'd forgotten. For now, from me, Will Luke, along with Andrew Miller, it's goodbye.

England celebrate in a huddle, winning by an innings-and-83 runs. They've utterly outplayed West Indies here. Stumps are grabbed and Andy Flower applauds them from the balcony, grinning from ear to ear. Pleasing start to his tenure for him. It's been a complete rout today; remember, they started on 115 for 3, so have lost 7 for 61 in the blink of an eye. A really forgettable Test and, in all honesty, a forgettable series for West Indies all round.

Bresnan to Edwards, OUT, got him! Goes for a big pull but top-edges it miles and miles in the air, the ball spiralling as fine-leg steadies himself to take a good catch. And England celebrate a 2-0 series-win

FH Edwards c sub (K Turner) b Bresnan 4 (14m 7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

Bresnan to Edwards, no run, short, wide of the off stump and left alone
Bresnan to Edwards, FOUR runs, bosh! Take that. A dismissive, slappy sort of pull which just evades deep square leg
Bresnan to Edwards, no run, fuller delivery and Edwards swipes and misses. And so does Collingwood, behind the stumps
Bresnan to Edwards, no run, another bouncer, but Edwards ignores it
Bresnan to Edwards, no run, drops in a bouncer which Edwards tries to hook, missing it completely. Very late swing after it passes by, Collingwood taking it nicely to his right

Anderson to Baker, FOUR runs, poor delivery down the leg side and Baker flicks him beautifully for four! Super shot, that

Six slips in place

England a cock-a-hoop here, mainly for Collingwood who cannot stop smiling. Matt Prior applauds from the balcony. England on the brink here and Anderson has a chance to pick-up ten wickets in the match.

Anderson to Chanderpaul, OUT, comes forward to defend as the ball holds its line - and Collingwood, the stand-in wicketkeeper, takes a simple catch behind, prompting extravagant celebrations!

S Chanderpaul c †Collingwood b Anderson 47 (113m 82b 6x4 0x6) SR: 57.31

Anderson to Chanderpaul, no run, wide of the off stump - a complete waste from Anderson and it's ignored

Eight fielders on the off side. Yes, eight

Anderson to Chanderpaul, no run, too straight, whipped off his pads but Chanders isn't going to take a single - understandably so
Anderson to Chanderpaul, no run, fuller delivery guided out to the off side
Anderson to Chanderpaul, no run, left alone outside off

Bresnan to Edwards, no run, sharp bouncer! That fairly flew through, though it was well played by Edwards, ducking beneath it
Bresnan to Chanderpaul, 1 run, cor, there's the sort of swing we saw before lunch, booming back into the left-hander
Bresnan to Chanderpaul, no run, goes for a cut and bottom-edges it down, short of Collingwood (keeping wicket in place of Prior)
Bresnan to Chanderpaul, no run, punched out to the off side. No great sign of swing
Bresnan to Chanderpaul, no run, wide of the off stump and left alone
Bresnan to Chanderpaul, no run, a dibbly dobbly little seamer outside off

Welcome back everyone. Two wickets for England to grab for a 2-0 series win. And it'll be Bresnan to open after lunch

  • James Anderson15-5-34-3
  • Tim Bresnan12-2-40-2

What a session, and what a fine display of swing bowling by James Anderson and Tim Bresnan. Anderson's control of the huge swing on offer has been fascinating to watch, and he and Bresnan have put England on the brink of a 2-0 series-win. Lunch now, so join us in 40 minutes for the final two wickets.

Anderson to Benn, OUT, bowled him with a beauty! Angling into Benn's middle stump, it shapes away to knock back the off stump

SJ Benn b Anderson 0 (18m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

  • Anderson has Ashes in his sights

    James Anderson has admitted he would like the Ashes to start right away so that he could continue his match-winning Test form

  • An embarassing defeat

    The defeat in the second Test, completed quarter-hour after lunch yesterday, was as swift, embarrassing and emphatic and brought about by the same factors as those at Headingley in 2000 and 2007

  • England refuse to get carried away

    The next time Andrew Strauss dons the whites for England will be when he walks out to toss alongside Ricky Ponting at Cardiff. After England's crushing innings victory today, he was at pains to point out "there is plenty of cricket to be played" before th

  • West Indian listlessness a sign of the times

    As West Indies slumped to a series defeat, Caribbean ire has been as high as the jubilation a few weeks ago

  • Gayle backtracks on captaincy comments

    This series hasn't been Chris Gayle's finest hour. He turned up 48 hours before the first Test, spent a lot of time complaining about the cold and, to cap it all, said he wouldn't mind if Test cricket didn't exist. So, in many respects, he got what he des
