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 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.

James Anderson To Kemar Roach OUT!
OUT! BOWLED 'EM! That was too hot for Kemar Roach to handle. Anderson goes wide of the crease and bowls an inswinger around middle and off. Roach tries drive it but it goes between bat and pad to hit the middle stump. Roach tried battling hard but he falls prey to Anderson. England are just one wicket away now.
