Scorecard and ball-by-ball details
The end came sooner than the clouds. West Indies began the day needing 71 with six wickets in hand, but there were no twists as the hosts knocked off the required runs in just over an hour and secured a 2-0 series win, their first against a team other than Bangladesh and Zimbabwe, in the last three years. There were fears that the tropical storm, Ernesto, would wash away the last two days of the Test, but much to the relief of the home side, the players woke up to clear skies. Kemar Roach and Shivnarine Chanderpaul played contrasting knocks, but extinguished any fears that West Indies could capitulate in the anxiety of pushing for that elusive series win.
