See ya!

Right, that's it from us.

Stephan Shemilt's match report is over here, and we'll be back on Friday at Headingley to see if West Indies can take a Test to five days.

Cheers for your company, as ever. In a bit!

Kemar Roach bent his back and put in the effort with the ball but England had their own way in the first innings. From then on, it's been a bowling masterclass.

'There's always been teams that struggle'

Trevor Bayliss on the West Indies' struggles: "I don't think this era of cricket is any different to any other era. There's always been strong teams and one or two that are struggling. West Indies are going through a rough time but 20, 40, 60 years ago there were other teams that were going through rough periods."

We need West Indies; the game needs West Indies. We need to see them competing and if the ICC needs to spend money to improve their structure, their first class cricket and to send some coaches over, then so be it. This won't be a quick fix.

'Windies have plenty of pride'

England coach Trevor Bayliss speaking to Test Match Special: "The boys have a big smile on their face, but we will keep working hard and try and win the next Test. They have extra two days at home now which is nice in a long summer.

"It was a good win. We had to work hard against South Africa and this one obviously was a little bit easier but West Indies have plenty of pride and I'm sure they will come out fighting in the next Test."

James Anderson has bowled beautifully. He's got his length right and got the ball moving around. Especially his pace and that zip. I have seen enough from him this summer to realise there is plenty left in his tank.

'I am privileged to bowl with Jimmy'

More from Stuart Broad on his bowling partner James Anderson: "It's the best I have seen him bowl. He's looking a huge threat, I am very privileged to bowl at the other end to him and hopefully that will continue for the foreseeable future.

"My partnership with him is something I have been very lucky to be a part of. We have become very good friends through cricket, which is wonderful."

Well played England. Outstanding with Bat and Ball. Good all round performance against a very poor West Indies side #EngvWI #DayNightTest

'Botham has been a hero of mine'

Stuart Broad, who took 3-43 in the second innings, speaking to Test Match Special: "Ian Botham has been a hero of mine. I used to watch him play, especially when he played with my dad. He had a great influence on me. His performances against Australia are inspirational. It's a special day.

"He gave me my Test cap in 2007 but six months before that I got a call up to the West Indies and he was there. He gave me advice, saying, 'You're in this position because you've performed for your county so just relax and don't put extra pressure on yourself.' That advice is something I've always tried to hold on to."

The reason Woakes didn't play this week was that he didn't have enough cricket - well, that won't change at Headingley. The only way I can see it happening is if they rest Broad or Anderson, but neither will want to be rested. If they get 2-0 up in the series, then they may rest one of them and bring Woakes in. I think they will stick with the winning team.

'Woakes can only add to our strength'

England captain Joe Root on Test Match Special: "We were relentless on a wicket that did do a little bit. When you have the skill of Broad, Anderson and the other guys, it can be difficult for the opposition.

"It's important we rest up and stay fresh. We now have a bonus day off for the lads to put their feet up.

"I hope Chris Woakes is fit for Leeds - it can only add to the strength of the team. Whether we change the winning XI, we will have to wait and see."

The same problems England had before the summer are still same problems they have now. They have won four out five Tests but there are still problems at batting positions two, three and five. I think England will only bat twice more in this series, once at Headingley and once at Lord's.

England batted only once in this Test, which means Mark Stoneman and Tom Westley, must wait for the second Test for another chance to impress.

What lasts longer than a West Indies innings?


Patrick Hallam: Most family games of Monopoly. No get-out-of-jail card for the Windies.

'Broad can turn a game on its head'

England captain Joe Root, speaking to Sky Sports about Stuart Broad: "Very remarkable. Very pleasing. We talk about being ruthless. Stuart Broad has had a fantastic career to date and I am sure there is plenty more left in the tank. He has those spells in him where he can turn a game on its head. Today was a fine example of that. He is very skillful and has a number of different deliveries.

"As a whole squad we are always looking at ways to get better and ways to improve and it is great to see the senior guys leading that."

Probably the best wicket of the day - and there was plenty to choose from - was this that took Broad past Botham's tally. Wicket number 384. Drink it in.

KP has his say

Gayle, Bravo, Pollard, Sammy etc. They are the STARS. Kids need STARS to aspire to! Those STARS are T20 kings! Like it not, it's truth!

Test cricket needs to bring in two divisions, where teams know they can get relegated or promoted, so the same standard of teams play against each other. What we have seen over the few days is not good for the game.

A pink ball, day-night, it doesn't matter. The gulf in class is so wide, the product of the game isn't good to see. They need to make Test cricket relevant so we know every two years who the best team in the world is.

'We have to believe'

West Indies captain Jason Holder, speaking to Sky Sports: "I felt we were in the game in the first session but Cook and Root put on a really good partnership for England.

"It is obviously very disappointing. We have to just believe. We have a few days off now, the idea is to use them wisely. It is not impossible, we can't drop our heads on one game the series is not lost. We just need to believe and come back stronger for the second Test match."

There was a nice moment just now between Stuart Broad and Ian Botham. Botham says it was quite emotional, watching Broad get close to overtaking his tally, while Broad pays tribute to a man that he says inspired him as a youngster to play cricket.

It's so important for West Indies to rebound from this. Even if they lose at Headingley and Lord's, they need to show progression. Being consistent and disciplined was the challenge for West Indies - it continues to be the challenge. It's there for all to see.

Man of the match - Alastair Cook

Alastair Cook, who scored 243, on Test Match Special: "This is unbelievable for an old man like me. It's always nice to win and contribute with a big score. We bowled well today - Jimmy and Broady are world class. It's a special achievement for Broad. That spell of bowling after tea, he was fired up and did what he does. He should be very proud.

"To win in three days is a great effort. It's so easy from the sidelines saying this would be an easy Test, but you're in the battle and on that first morning you have the nerves, you don't see that from the sidelines."

England will be delighted, they will celebrate long and hard and it is a special moment for Stuart Broad. The West Indies team is just so young. It won't get any easier at Headingley, where the red ball will do more than the pink ball.

What do England learn from this? Their batting problems are still there, they've had three days worth of experience with the pink ball, in their own conditions, and you can guarantee Australia aren't going to roll over like this come the Ashes. Australia thrashed West Indies at home in 2015 before they came here for the Ashes, and look how well that series turned out for them...

This is West Indies sixth heaviest Test defeat, in terms of runs, and their third worst against England. That tells a story in itself. The full list is over here, courtesy of Cricinfo.

'We need to turn it around'

West Indies captain Jason Holder on Test Match Special: "I am not happy. We didn't play good enough. Being beaten in three days is disappointing. We need to turn it around.

"Broad and Anderson bowled well, but we just weren't good enough. We have to spend next the few days recuperating and coming up with some new plans."

Arsenal Related: I'm a massive fan of Test cricket, but this series against West Indies is a complete waste of time to be honest.

Mr Fizz: So who is STILL saying this is a worthwhile "test" series then? WI could have had 300 start and still lost. Absolutely boring!

Michael Vaughan

Ex-England captain on BBC Test Match Special

This saddens me. There's a lot of young players in the West Indies side and you need to give them time, but I find it difficult that they can go on without any senior players. There is no one there to teach them. This series will be sad to watch.

Er. There's some football on, Richard? And some KSL matches. Oh, and Dragons Den is on.

What are we going to listen to on day four?


England have been clinical in the field, with Broad in particular coming back from a disappointing second day to bowl with real control and consistency. Anderson was as good as ever, I thought Moeen did a cracking job in holding down an end and exploiting a pitch that was keeping low, and Roland-Jones was economical. But really, the absolutely shambolic nature of West Indies batting will dominate the discussions over the next few days.

Michael Vaughan

Ex-England captain on BBC Test Match Special

A really good performance by England. They would have been expected to win at the start of the week but probably not as comfortable as it has been. For West Indies to lose 19 wickets, I really fear this series could be one of the saddest for Test match cricket. Every time they have arrived in England, they seem to have got worse and worse.

Nineteen wickets have fallen today. In two innings, West Indies have made a combined score of 305, which is 62 more than Alastair Cook scored in England's innings.

England applaud the fans as they walk off the pitch. It's good to see plenty have stayed behind, particularly in the Hollies Stand, to see England claim victory. Stuart Law, West Indies' coach, cuts a beleaguered figure as he makes his way down the stairs to shake England's hands.


Joseph c Stokes b Roland-Jones (WI 137 all out)

It's all over. A truly dismal day for West Indies comes to end as Joseph gets a thick edge to Stokes, who takes a fine diving catch at third slip. They've been bowled out for the second time in the day.

By 'if' on this below tweet, we of course meant 'when'...

WI 137-9

Anderson 7-2-12-2

Miguel Cummins, on a pair, sees off the Anderson over. What a shambles of a day for West Indies.

Michael Vaughan

A bit of inswing from James Anderson. We've seen that from West Indies' batsmen today - they've not had much balance playing drives. Anderson is getting ever nearer that 500 mark. I fancy him to get there at Headingley.


Roach b Anderson 12 (WI 137-9)

Not to be outdone by his team-mate, Anderson nips through Kemar Roach with a belter! There's a hint of swing as Roach, feet trapped on the crease, pushes forward and promptly gets his stumps rearranged. High-fives all around for Anderson as last man Miguel Cummins enters the playing field. England are one wicket away from a three day victory.
