The Windies batting has been truly inept.

All over

West Indies didn't even try to hang around to see if the weather might save them

Good to see England turn this around.  Apparently the first time they have won a three test series, after being one, down since 1885!  Some really good performances with Woakes and Broad outstanding. I wish Broad was like this all the time as he'd be number one in the world.

That's an incredible stat if true! I know three-test series' are relatively recent, but still.

I heard Ebony say it in commentary having checked it out through Benedict, their stats guy.  Apparently, there have been 95, three-day series since that date.  It is an incredible stat.

Didn't England beat NZ 2-1 after being one down about ten years ago.

And yes, the Windies batting was largely shite.

I think that's why Holder opted to bowl.

Without Hetmyer and Bravo they were light in the batting.

But if you pick two spinners, you have to bat first, don't you?

That was the big mistake - two spinners.  If you are going to bowl first you need pace.

Although the Ireland team has been pretty poor so far, kudos to whoever in their recruitment team persuaded Curtis Campher to play.

He looks a hell of a prospect
