Absolute beaut of a bouncer from Archer to get rid of Chase.

Took a bit longer than we'd like, we really can't afford them to build another partnership now.

England have had a go, and Archer has been magnificent, but we've missed a few chances and you can't afford that in a low chase.  Need an epic collapse from here.

Indeed, needed to take the chances we got, the Buttler drop being the big one we missed out on.

Stokes gets one, one ball after having another one ruled out for his foot being a cm over.

Blackwood gone but probably an hour too late to save the game. Only need 11 more with 4 wickets still to play with.

I doubt Campbell plays in the next match, he's come back out but can barely run. Not sure why they sent him out at all.

People will talk about the toss and Broad / Wood but they outplayed us and fully deserved the win.

I'd really like to see Denly out for Root and for Ollie Stone to be given a go for the next test.  Too inconsistent in the bowling department in this test match.  I wish Archer would bowl like he's angry because he could be scary.  Wood hasn't had a great test, stupid shot to get out this morning.  Windies were more consistent than we were.  We should have batted first too.

Wouldn't say they have outplayed us over the whole piece.  You don't win many matches if you get a well below par first innings score.  That and the tail completely folding in the second innings cost us dearly.

Well done to the Windies. They were more clinical.

I always want England to win, but if we have to lose to anyone Iím glad itís the Windies. World cricket needs the Windies to be good and Jason Holder is a mighty impressive player and leader.

World cricket does indeed need a strong West Indian side, but to be fair they've been their own worst enemies a lot of the time, particularly their own board.

I was quite impressed with them last time they were here, once they'd d got that awful performance in the day/night test at Edgbaston out of the way and they look a pretty decent outfit this time around.  Their seam attack looks more than useful and agree about Holder, captains the side very well.

I have to echo the people praising the Windies. They don't look like world-beaters, because they're not, but they were the better side and deserved the win. Up to us to come back positively now, beginning with dropping Denly. How a man of his seniority in years and with his scores has played 15 tests, I'm not quite sure.

I thought we bowled well, Archer in particular bowled a couple of good spells in the morning session on day 5. Iíd be happy to stick with that attack for the 2nd test. It was the batsmen that let us down not the bowlers.
