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

Fidel 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

James Anderson 16-5-38-4
Tim Bresnan 13-2-41-2
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!

Shivnarine 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
