Anderson bowls England to series victory at Lord's

England's only victory in Australia in the past 30 years came in 2010-11, when Andrew Strauss' side won three Tests by an innings in a 3-1 series win. Shai Hope, whose twin hundreds in Leeds set up the decider here, was named their man of the series. Mark Stoneman, Tom Westley and Dawid Malan were selected for the Windies series but none of them made the big score which would have given them breathing space and neither did Keaton Jennings or Gary Ballance earlier in the summer.

'I think it's going to be very exciting, they're pretty evenly matched, ' Warne told Sky Sports.

"He said at start of the summer he is desperate to carry on while he can, and this year has shown what he is still capable of. To show composure and be the two guys not out to win a game for England was great to see and it shows where the mentality of the dressing room is right now".

"In the second innings Jimmy was outstanding".

During 14 overs sent down by England's senior pair, West Indies managed 19 for the loss of two wickets, their plan to try and get through the early stages intact derailed inside the first over of the day.

He then bowled Kemar Roach for three to better his previous best of seven for 43 against New Zealand at Trent Bridge in Nottingham in 2008. The 35-year-old is bowling better than ever, and, bowling from the Nursery End, he picked up a Test match career best 7-42 amid jubilant scenes at headquarters.

"I didn't think I'd play anywhere near as much for England", added the Lancashire swing bowler.

For West Indies, the huge consolation of the series was the way they bounced back from an innings defeat in the opener at Edgbaston to draw level days later with a five-wicket win in the second Test at Headingley.

West Indies held a slender 22-run lead with seven wickets remaining at the beginning of this third day.

For the second time in the match, Anderson walked off to a standing ovation from a capacity Lord's crowd.

Cook was lbw to leg-spinner Bishoo's first ball of the match but Stoneman and Westley batted comfortably enough.

But despite the improved batting conditions, it only needed four balls on Saturday for Anderson to take another wicket.

West Indies' hopes had rested squarely on his shoulders during the morning session, when he was vigilance personified while losing three partners. And they failed to add to that before the leader of England's attack struck with the fourth ball of the day, Roston Chase the victim of a attractive delivery that he edged behind to Jonny Bairstow.

The rather more patient Hope, 35 not out overnight, took 54 balls to score his first boundary on Saturday but a resounding cover-drive off Ben Stokes was worth the wait. Although Dowrich battled stoically to reach double-figures for the first time in the series, he then spooned a miscued pull to mid-on trying to go after Roland-Jones. But as he had said before the third Test, "I am not really that fussed".

Shai Hope held the key to the West Indies staying in the game but he received little in the way of support. "But I'm extremely proud, and can't fault the guys for their effort". "I've seen a lot of fight which I haven't seen for a long time". Both will hope to be in England's Ashes party, although if there was anything this unexpectedly rewarding series had taught us, it was not to look too far ahead.
