That will be that. Stokes cleverly follows Paul down leg and cramps him for room. He flaps at the ball, which then spoons up off the splice for a simple return catch. So England finally secure the victory. It was always coming after they nipped out four early wickets with the new ball. Roston Chase made sure they had to wait longer than anticipated, though, with a wonderfully crafted century. The visitors were by far the better side in this game, and they deserve to come out on top. The stand out performances being Mark Wood's five wicket haul in the second innings, and Joe Root's hundred in the third. So that ends this fantastic Test series, which finishes 2-1 to the hosts. We move onto the ODIs now, which begins next Wednesday.

Paul isn't going to hang around with this injury of his now. He can't run, so is just trying for boundaries. He finds one here. Clattered over cow corner.
