England vs West Indies (ENG vs WI) 3rd Test Day 5 Highlights: England won the first cricket series in four months when it defeated the West Indies in the deciding third test by 269 runs on the last day Tuesday at Old Trafford. England snatched the bio-secure series 2-1 after losing the first test by 113 runs in Southampton.

The West Indies, resuming the fifth and last day on 10-2, had a tall order to bat out the day to force a series-saving draw, any hope of making 399 to win long gone. The weather wasn’t going to save the tourists, either, though they stopped for showers three times.
