Denesh Ramdin has made a brilliant century in a losing cause. He came in at 43-4 and made England sweat late on. Nobody was able to give him significant support as England's 303 proved to be enough for them to win the series.

The game was set up by a match-winning partnership from Joe Root and Jos Buttler. Tim Bresnan and Stuart Broad were the best of the England bowlers and they were always able to take wickets at crucial times. They take the series 2-1 and move into the T20 series beginning on Sunday with confidence.
