Presentations Polite applause for the officials ... and then it's Daren Ganga. "I must commend the guys and everyone contributed ... it's been a massive improvement and we're looking forward to the last Test." And then it's Michael Vaughan, cheered as he comes up. Fredalo all forgiven. "We had to fight hard and we're delighted with the victory ... they really dug in and batted well and we knew it would be tough." Special praise for Harmison who showed "tremendous character" in the way he bowled in the second innings.

And the Man of the Match is Monty Panesar for his 10 for 187. There's a surprise. "I'm delighted to get my first ten-for ... it was all about not getting carried away."

And that's all from us at Old Trafford. From Martin Williamson and Jenny Thompson it's goodbye and join us again on Friday for the fourth and final Test at Chester-le-Street.

England win by 60 runs Monty Panesar has his ten-for in the match - the first by an England spinner in almost a decade - and its hugs all round as Chanderpaul heads off to deserved applause. England have retained the Wisden Trophy and Michael Vaughan sets a new record by leading England to 21 wins.

W
Panesar to Collymore, OUT

and that's two balls too many ... full, clipped off bat and pad and Bell holds on to a brilliant one-handed reaction catch to his right at short leg. Collymore stands his ground, the umpires confer and refer ... the PA announces and England celebrate prematurely. England start high-fiving and hugging before the announcement as they get the thumbs-up from the dressing-room. It takes two minutes and endless replays before the third umpire gives his decision ... it's out

Harmison to Collymore, no run

fuller but still short of a length, Collymore deliberately plays inside the line

Harmison to Collymore, no run

and again Collymore ducks as well he might because that was dug in

131.2
Harmison to Collymore, no run

Chanderpaul not happy with himself at being stranded at the non-striker's end

Harmison to Edwards, OUT

another ripper from Harmison at Edwards' chest, he is turned square as he tries to get into line and the ball loops off the edge to gully where Bell runs to his left to hold the catch

Fidel Edwards c Bell b Harmison 0 (3m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0

Edwards peppered Harmison in both innings, so he had to expect some back

Harmison to Edwards, no run

short again and Edwards ducks right down and the ball sails over where his throat would have
