England has completed a comprehensive 269-run win in the third Test at Old Trafford in Manchester to regain the Wisden Trophy and script a come-from-behind series heist after having lost the first Test at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton.

The man of the day and perhaps the series is undoubtedly Stuart Broad, who registered his name in the pantheons of fast bowling folklore after he became only the 4th fast bowler and seventh overall in the history of the game to claim 500 wickets in Test match cricket.

Broad got the first wicket of the stop-start first session when he claimed Kraig Brathwaite with yet another nip-backer, pinning theWest Indies opener right in front of wickets for his 500th scalp.

Post that, it was a Chris Woakes [5-31] show, who despite all the rain stoppages, ran through the Windies lower-middle order to claim another five-wicket haul. While Shamarh Brooks nicked straight to the keeper and Roston Chase was run-out after a horrible mix-up, each of Jason Holder, Shane Dowrich, and Rahkeem Cornwall was pinned in front of wickets as Windies slipped from 5-87 to 9-119. And, it was fitting that Stuart Broad finished the game off when he claimed Jermaine Blackwood for 23, to cap off a memorable Test match for himself and England.
