Commentary (West Indies innings)

That is it from us for this game. It has all ended as expected. England thrashed the Windies within three days. They look a very balanced side in home conditions. West Indies on the other hand, will have to sort out their plans and come out fighting if they are to have any chance of leveling the series in the next game. That starts on the 25th of August at Headingly from 1100 local (1000 GMT) onwards. Till then, take care and goodbye!

Man of the Match, Alastair Cook says he feels good after scoring a double ton especially after the South Africa series. Mentions it was a good toss to win with the sun out, as it always favors the batsmen here at Edgbaston. Further adds he went into the series against South Africa after scoring quite a few runs for Essex but did not work that well as the pitches then were doing a lot. He admits it feels good after getting some runs under his belt here. Credits Root for his captaincy, his batting and the way he handles the team in the dressing room. ( On asked weather he helps Root with the DRS) He chuckles and says that he is bad at using DRS and Root is way better than him.

England skipper, Joe Root feels that it was a remarkable day for his team. Opines that his side was ruthless and executed a crushing win in style. Praises Stuart Broad for becoming England's second highest wicket-taker in Tests and feels that the pacer has been an asset over the years. Expresses joy at the senior players leading from the front. Ends by saying that the pink-ball Test initiation has been good for his team but insists that it's too early to comment on its future.

West Indies skipper, Jason Holder says he was very disappointed with the way they played. Admits they have to work on their lines and lengths in bowling. Credits England for their performance. Reckons they will have to believe and work out some plans to come out strongly for the next match. Mentions they lack experience and got nervous on the first day. Applauds Blackwood for his innings, keeping in mind that this was his first Test after a long break. Finishes by saying he hopes that Shannon Gabriel gets fit for the next Test.

It was always going to be tough for the Windies against a formidable England pace attack especially under lights. However, the lack of application was shocking and the visitors lost a record-breaking 19 wickets today to make a mockery of the longer format. Jermaine Blackwood in the first innings and Kraigg Brathwaite in the second showed some fight but found no support at all. England's bowlers all shared the spoils with Anderson and Broad dominating. The latter also became England's second highest wicket-taker in the process. Such was the hosts' dominance that this game has ended inside three days despite a rain delay yesterday.

Ruthless from England and they have crushed the Windies to go 1-0 up in the 3-match Test series. It was a no contest really barring perhaps the first hour on day one. Alastair Cook's double century was the cornerstone of England's formidable first innings total with skipper Joe Root also weighing in with a fluent ton. The duo's 248-run partnership set the tone for the hosts and Dawid Malan's maiden Test fifty further drove home the advantage. None of the Windies bowlers were able to create pressure apart from Kemar Roach to some extent.

45.4 T Roland-Jones to A Joseph, OUT! Toby Roland-Jones finishes it off. An emphatic victory for England. Toby Lands it on a length outside off, swings away further.

He has been brilliant in this spell and he has single-handedly run through the lower-middle order of the Windies. Steams in and lands it on a length, nips back in and beats the defenses of Dowrich to clean him up. Dowrich looked clueless and could do nothing about that delivery.

Kemar Roach strides out to the middle to face the hat-trick ball.

33.5 S Broad to Holder, OUT! Two-in-two for Broad! He gets the captain for a golden duck. A brilliant delivery there. Goes wide of the crease and angles it in on a length and the ball straightens a touch. Holder tries to defend it but gets an outside edge to Alastair Cook at first slip who takes a good low catch. Stuart Broad is all pumped and why won't he be, he is on a hat-trick. The Windies trail by 242 with only 3 wickets in hand. He also levels Sir Ian Botham in the all time wicket-taking list for England. 104/7

Nasser Hussain on air mentions the importance of specialist fielders in important places. Due to a lot of changes in the team, there is always a new player at a new position which the player is not used to and hence, a lot of half chances are not taken.

...Day 3, Session 3...

One-way traffic at Edgbaston as England continued to pummel the Windies. After enforcing the follow-on, the hosts have been relentless with pressure being created by all the bowlers. West Indies are already four down and staring down the barrel. Brathwaite was the only man to get some sort of a start but his departure just before the break has further dampened the visitors' spirits. The deficit is 270 and with almost 39 overs still left in the day, it will take a miracle for the tourists to stretch this game into the fourth day with a challenging twilight session also looming. Join us shortly for the final session.

26.2 M Ali to Brathwaite, OUT! A wicket at the stroke of Tea! Moeen Ali is the man who gets the wicket and once again it's a good review from England. This one turned sharply into the batsman. Ali bowls it flatter outside off, Brathwaite shuffles across and tries to work it fine but misses and the ball hits the pads. Moeen Ali appeals, he almost pleads to the umpire but the latter stays put. After talking to his teammates, Root decides to review and they go upstairs. Replays show there was no inside edge. Ball Tracker confirms that it was hitting him in line and was going on to hit the leg stump. The on-field call has to be changed. Moeen Ali is delighted. Brathwaite who looked solid out there, is taking the long walk back and so are the players and the umpires as IT IS TEA ON DAY 3! 76/4

10.1 T Roland-Jones to Hope, OUT! The change of ends for Roland-Jones does the job! He comes running in and bowls a full ball around off, which tails in late. Hope tries to work it on the leg side but misses and gets hit on the pads. Roland-Jones appeals and the umpire raises his finger. After a chat with his partner Hope opts to review. The umpire goes upstairs. Replays show that impact was in line and it was clipping the leg stump. A marginal decision by the umpire, could have gone both ways. In the end, he had given it out and so, Kyle has to walk back. West Indies lose a review. 41/2

Hope is been given out LBW and he decides to review. Difficult for it to be overturned.

5.3 S Broad to Brathwaite, THAT WAS NASTY! Brathwaite was all at sea and is lucky to survive. Short of a length that climbs uncomfortably into him as he tries to fend at it.

5.2 S Broad to Brathwaite, Straighter in line this time and Brathwaite clips it through square leg for a brace. 23/1

5.1 S Broad to Brathwaite, FOUR! NICE SHOT! Overpitched from Broad and pays the price. Brathwaite gets half-forward and eases it past the bowler. Lovely timing and it's placed well wide of mid off. Second boundary for Kraigg. 21/1

Kyle Hope is the new man in.

4.2 J Anderson to K Powell, OUT! ANDERSON STRIKES! Lovely delivery from England's spearhead, gets this good length ball to seam away late from off stump line and Powell is forced to play at it. He can only manage a thick edge that is pouched by Cook at first slip. Lovely bowling and West Indies have been rocked early in the second innings. THEY STILL TRAIL BY 331. 15/1

4.1 J Anderson to Brathwaite, Leg bye! Loud appeal but turned down! Missing leg stump clearly. Brathwaite shuffles a bit as he looks to clip the full inswinger but gets struck on the pads.

3.6 S Broad to Powell, Full and around off stump, defended well off the front foot. 14/0

3.5 S Broad to K Powell, FOUR! STREAKY THIS TIME! Powell isn't going to die wondering. Tries to repeat a lofted back foot stroke but gets it off the outer half over backward point. Nobody in the deep and that will run away for a boundary. Frustration for England but they shouldn't mind this really. 14/0

3.4 S Broad to Powell, RISKY! Powell isn't afraid of going aerial but needs to be careful. Good length ball outside off stump, he lifts it off the back foot square of the wicket. Not entirely in control but gets it over the infield. Brace taken. 10/0

Luckily for him, it flies away between the slips and gully to the third man fence. He is off the dreaded king pair and surely will be relieved. 8/0

1.2 S Broad to Powell, FOUR! Slightly aerial but also in the gap! Full and outside off stump, draws Powell into the drive and it's a bit uppish. It's well to the left of the point fielder and races away to the fence. Broad won't mind this at all. 4/0

1.1 S Broad to Powell, Just short of a good length angling in from outside off stump, a touch wide and Powell lets it pass. 0/0
