Paul strechered off   Looks a bad injury and simple  catch dropped off Denly Gabriel looks unimpressed.

Perfect time for the batsmen to fill their boots. One bowler down and series won.

Nothing like those all important runs when there is no pressure. Then to hear the usual "we adapted to conditions a little late due to lack of warm up games"

50 for Denly, batted lad

Is that enough for him to cement the no.3 spot for the Ireland Test (and possibly beyond)?

Hopefully especially if he carries on and Tons up should at least keep the slot for the Ireland Test and also will be playing Div1 next season so highest standard to hopefully score some early season championship runs. Lets hope he and Root our windies totally out of sight

Don't see why not, he's a good player with a lot of experience.
Delighted he's got a score.

Remember he is in the spot no one wants so that may work in his favour.

We are still short of an opener thou, Jennings needs some technical help from somewhere, maybe it will be whoever gets championship runs when the season starts.

Stoneman,Robson....could be anyone

Personally wouldn't take to much from an  innings against a depleted bowling attack and windies side  playing like a team with a series win.

Thing that annoys me is that his hundreds have come when either the series is already lost or won, he doesn't make contributions that really count towards a series win

Thought Denly looked very good today.  On debut he looked nervous, which is perhaps understandable when you don't open currently at first class level but looked composed today and he doesn't have any obvious technical failings which is mo4r than can be said for two lads above him.  It's not a great endorsement of county cricket when Burns and Jennings have been big run scorers in the first class game but have fundamental flaws with their games.

I was listening to the tv commentary earlier and Ian Bishop we mentioning that the problems the Windies have in selecting a side is that the standard of first class cricket is so low that the step up to the test game is massive.  That feels very much like where we are at the moment.

Denly is a plus today and he would of been under pressure maybe playing for a spot in the Ashes. England have not shown a lot of patience with players 30+ recently.

Roots ton was pointless they are a bowler down minus there Captain and series won, he needs to make runs when the pressure is on as others have said above.

Rapidly losing faith in those making decisions above the direction the team goes, I think they are creating a selfish mindset in the players and the gobbledegook selection is a joke.

My first test match live was 1984, I was in the West Indian end with mates and they have always been my second favourite team I'm not unhappy they have won.

No doubt at all they deserved it,they are well led and play for each other.
