The Test match is over. Dravid shakes hands with Samuels, the bowler, walks across to have a pleasant chat with Lara, both captains have a laugh about something, and slowly the players walk out of the arena. So that's it then, a rather strange match is over. Looked to yawning towards a draw, before Jerome Taylor brought it alive with an inspired burst. India rallied through VVS Laxman's 10th Test ton, but couldn't avert the follow-on. But Lara chose not to enforce and there was a bit of stop-start chase on the final day before the curtains came down.

This is Sriram Veera, along with Sajan Nair, signing off. Please join us for the last and final Test, starting on June 30 in Jamaica. Till then, good bye and good luck!
