We'll have a full package from today, as well as a series-review, at the site (RSS) in the coming minutes, hours and days so do keep an eye on the series page. Don't forget to read Andrew Miller's bulletin, too. I've been Will Luke, and along with Andrew we hope you've enjoyed our commentary for this gripping series. Well, it was gripping at times, wasn't it? We'll be back for the one-dayers and hope you'll join us then.

Of course, there will be odd dozen or thousand people who will complain England batted for too long but there's no point looking back. What's done is done, and West Indies have every reason to celebrate a rare and deserved series-win.

What a final day that has been. It's been thrilling, enthralling and wonderful to watch. Gayle comes out on to the pitch and the two teams all shake hands with each other as England applaud the crowd. It's the first time they've won a series in five years - and they're showing a new-found resilience to their cricket which has been completely lacking over the past decade. These are great scenes; Gayle is at the heart of the celebrations, pumping everyone's hands and generally mucking around with complete abandon

Panesar to Edwards, no run

nudged to leg and that's it! West Indies win the series! They know they can't lose and they're partying on the balcony - and England reluctantly shake hands, and it's the end of the match

Here we go. Two balls to survive

George Headley, Everton Weekes, Garry Sobers, IVA Richards, BC Lara, FH Edwards...

65.4
Panesar to Edwards, no run

well back in his crease...and he defends!

65.3
Panesar to Edwards, no run

on the back foot, shuffling across and he defends! Well played

This is absurdly tense

65.2
Panesar to Edwards, no run

tossed up and somehow that misses the off stump! And his bat. Did he hit it? I don't think so but either way Prior couldn't take it. No edge though

65.1
Panesar to Edwards, no run

tosses it up on off stump and it turns, bounces and he misses!

Swann or Monty? It's Monty. Last over. The field is as absurd as you can imagine - they're all around the bat

end of over 651 run

James Anderson16-7-24-3

Anderson looks a finished man. That's the end of his series, and he's down on his haunches. He's bowled superbly all Test

64.6
Anderson to Ramdin, no run

swinging back into him and it's defended

64.5
Anderson to Ramdin, no run

spearing into him, he defends

64.4
Anderson to Ramdin, no run

passes the outside edge! Drags him forward and he gropes unconvincingly. Sheesh, that wasn't too far away at all

Ramdin looks cool, calm, collected - not a bead of sweat on him. He's not smiling, he's not grimacing - a placid, nerveless expression really

64.3
Anderson to Ramdin, no run

ooh a hint of movement away from the right hander but he shuffles across to defend. And he defends solidly

64.2
Anderson to Ramdin, no run

blocked off the back foot

Ramdin on strike now. This is excellent play by West Indies - just what the doctor ordered. I don't know which doctor. I don't know what I'm saying now

Anderson to Edwards, 1 run

well played! Not a good ball, outside off and punched out to cover for a hastily run single

I think I'm turning into Bill Lawry. This is unbearable. Anderson to Edwards
