England crush West Indies a second time

6:04 am on 19 May 2009

The England cricketers have completed another crushing test win over the West Indies to wrap up an emphatic two-nil series win.

England's seam bowlers James Anderson and Tim Bresnan ripped through the West Indies batting order, dimissing the tourists for 176 to take the match by an innings and 83 runs in Durham.

Anderson had match figures of 9 for 125, but batsman Ravi Bopara was named player of the series for his two centuries.

England now await the Ashes series at home against Australia starting in July, following the Twenty20 World Cup which is also in England.
