Bdos: Windies defeat in Port of Spain

Mark Butcher and Graham Thorpe ushered England to a seven-wicket victory over the West Indies on the final day of the second cricket test yesterday. Following the match, West Indies manager Ricky Skerritt announced his resignation, effective after the home series against Bangladesh in June.

England needed only 28 runs to reach its target of 99 on the fifth morning and lost only former captain Nasser Hussain off the day’s second ball.

The West Indies was bowled out for 208 and 209 and England made 319 and 99 for three at Queen’s Park Oval to retain the Wisden Trophy with an unassailable 2-0 lead in the four-test series
Oh, the shame of it! The shame! The shame!
