    Trevor Bayliss on the prospect of Jofra Archer coming into the one-day team: "He's one guy that has been spoken about a fair bit and he's one guy we'll be keeping an eye on."

  5. Post update

    More from Bayliss on Wood: It was a wonderful to see and it was a great atmosphere when he came charging in and got a few past the noise. It was exciting. It will be difficult to look after him. if we can get him in that frame of mind and his body in that shape, there's exciting times ahead."

  6. Post update

    England coach Trevor Bayliss, speaking on Sky Sports: "It's been a rollercoaster but our challenge is to play like this more regularly. Our batting clicked in this game. The first two wickets we played on - in particular the first one in Barbados - was difficult and they bowled well but in this match a few of the guys fought hard. We took their bowlers into a second and third spell in this match and that helps. We've had a couple of discussions after the last couple of Tests. It has to come from within and in this Test I think they have shown what they've got.

    "Going into this Test, we said we didn't care how many runs they scored after 25/30 overs. The simple fact is if we bat through and bat long, the runs will come.

    "The middle order we had in this match is probably our best but we've been trying to make it even better. We've always had the luxury of going back to this batting order.

    "I think they've all shown what they are capable and the challenge is to do it more regularly. The early-season Championship matches will play a big role for those at the top. If they score a lot of runs early season it will go a long way to helping them play in that first Ashes Test."

    I'm back in the nets on Monday. It'll be the first time I've picked up a bat properly since that moment at The Oval.

  12. 'Our goal is to be the number one team in the world'

    West Indies captain Jason Holder: "I had a chat with Roston [Chase] before his innings. He was a little disheartened with his dismissals in this series so it is good to see him knuckle down and get some runs, especially in the context of the day. It would have been easy for us to be rolled over.

    "We have got to keep improving in the three facets of the game and be clinical and lot more consistent. Our bowlers have done an outstanding job. It is up to our batsmen to contribute more.

    "We need to continue to build and not rest on our laurels. Our number one goal is to be the number one team in the world so there is a lot to improve on."

    Jason Holder
  13. Man of the series - Kemar Roach

    Man of the series Kemar Roach, who took 18 wickets at 13.88: "It was a good series for me. All the hard work coming into the series paid off. It was a very competitive series and congratulations to our guys for a first Test series win of 2019. I'm proud of myself and the guys and let's keep moving forward."

    Arthur Branch: Really good performance from England. If they can learn to build some consistency, what a team they could be!

  15. 'A confidence-booster' - captain's view

    England captain Joe Root: "We played some good cricket throughout the week. It should be a real confidence-booster going into an exciting summer for us.

    "It was important we played well this week. West Indies deserved to win the series, they outplayed us in the first two games, but it's a real step forward for this team to perform like we did this week."

    On his batting: "I went and spent some time working on some things and I was able to take that confidence into the game."

    On Mark Wood: "I thought Mark bowled fantastically well - it made for great theatre and it was great to be on the field watching it."

  17. Man of the match - Mark Wood

    Mark Wood, speaking at the presentation: "I was full of confidence after the England Lions tour. I just thought I'd try and hit the ground running and try and tear it up.

    "I wasn't really thinking about the speed gun. I watched Gabriel thunder-bolting them down all series so I thought I better get some of them down."
