Third Test, Edgbaston
West Indies 426 drew with England 221-5

England and West Indies shook hands just before tea on the fifth day at Edgbaston when yet again no play was possible due to the unsettled Birmingham weather.

The draw means England finish series winners 2-0 after victories at Lord’s and Trent Bridge. The teams went into today’s play knowing that the match was heading for a draw after the first two days had been washed out without a ball being bowled.

The teams will now get themselves ready to compete in a five match one-day international series. England announced the squad for these matches this afternoon.

Squad in full: Alastair Cook, James Anderson, Jonny Bairstow, Ian Bell, Ravi Bopara, Tim Bresnan, Stuart Broad, Jade Dernbach, Steven Finn, Craig Kieswetter, Eoin Morgan, Samit Patel, Graeme Swann, Jonathan Trott
