James Anderson replaces Ravindra Jadeja as No. 1 Test bowler

Ben Stokes was bowled off a Shannon Gabriel no-ball- before being dismissed legally in the same fashion two balls later

The Headingley match featured twin hundreds from Shai Hope - his first centuries in Test cricket - and the 23-year-old underlined his promise with two more impressive innings in hard conditions at Lord's.

"Playing a Test match here at Lord's is always special, but this week will live with me for a long time", Anderson told Sky Sports. "To be able to hold a length and put guys under pressure is a great skill".

That left England requiring a mere 107 to win, with an unbroken partnership of 72 between Mark Stoneman and Tom Westley completing a comprehensive victory.

A nine-wicket win inside three days at the "home of cricket" meant England had won both of Root's first two series as captain following a preceding 3-1 home triumph over South Africa.

The England cricket team celebrate after winning the test series against the West Indies at Lord's cricket ground in London on Saturday. Leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo struck first ball to have Alastair Cook (17) lbw but that merely denied England a 10- wicket victory.

"The ball looked out of shape, I don't know how he managed to get seven wickets with it".

However, with his dismissal after almost four hours at the crease, the West Indies' hopes of setting England any sort of challenging target disappeared.

Stokes (60) notched his 12th Test fifty as the hosts scored 194 to earn a 71-run lead on first innings - Stuart Broad also contributing with a dashing late 38 that featured four fours and two sixes.

Indian opener KL Rahul has moved to the ninth position in the batsmen's rankings while middle-order bat Ajinkya Rahane makes it to the top-10 again by moving to the tenth position. Hopefully we can take this momentum on through to the winter [for the Ashes].

"Credit must go to James Anderson". After getting his 500th Test wicket he has now become the number one Test bowler.
