Having taken the 5-0 ass-whooping from the Canary Yellows this winter, it was great to record a test victory, especially as it meant that Michael Vaughan equalled Peter May’s record of 20 Test wins as England captain. KP and Vaughan excelled with the bat, but who would have though that Sideshow Bob would have been so destructive?

Unfortunately, I for one am left a little cold by the innings and four-thousand run victory over the West Indies. Granted, we bowled and batted well, England are a decent test side, we had the better of the conditions, and the Windies were unlucky with injuries. However, having grown up watching the great West Indian sides of the 1980s, it is sad to see them looking so poor.
