bowled him! He went for a sweep and dragged it on - and West Indies record a quite brilliant victory
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.
on the off stump, Harmison's forward and prodding
Around the wicket to Harmison
ooh well bowled! An inswinging brute which is dug out
Monty leaves it alone
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
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
Flintoff's going for a huge heave here, but Edwards sees him coming and he's hit on the leg with a full toss
again he steps outside leg but prods it out to the off side
Welcome to you all. I'm sure there are thousands logging on to see what misery England have inflicted on themselves. I'm Will Luke and, together with Andrew Miller, we'll be guiding you through the mist of this wonderful mess. It's been a memorable and thrilling day so far
steps to leg and tries to clatter him inside out over cover
Edwards replaced Powell
David Prentice writes in. "What's happening to world cricket? Aussie on the decline and Windies playing with much more commitment. Great for the game!" England might disagree but, yes - bring it on.
left alone - wide of the off stump
Cricinfo's Gnasher: "'London bridge is falling down' is currently being pumped out over the speakers. They have a sense of humour here."
Hawkeye (remember - the third umpire isn't allowed to use it) shows it would have just clipped the leg stump. But, really, the game is already long gone
Sidebottom is rapped on the pads and up goes Rudi's finger. But Sidebottom is referring it. Now then. Daryl Harper will have to find a specific error with the on-field umpire's original (out) decision, and replays are indicating that it would've gone onto hit the stumps. After a short delay, Rudi raises his finger for the second time and Sidebottom is furious...
Around the wicket to Sidebottom
angled out to the off side for England's fifty. The Barmies rejoice
comes forward to smother it
steps outside leg and defends
prods forward and blocks it like a legend
Around the wicket. Will Flintoff go after him?
left alone outside off to complete a maiden
firmly defended on the back foot
beaten once more with a beauty that angles across Sidebottom
England only need 25 to level the scores. Game on?
what a cracker! That left him at the last moment and he followed it
elegantly defended on the back foot, standing tall
"Well, an average team of west Indies players are slaughtering England's batsmen, i cant believe how easily the wickets are falling, it makes you sad to be English listening to it," writes a fan
