England 77 (Roach 5-17) & 246 (Burns 84, Chase 8-60)
West Indies win by 381 runs

Part-time off-spinner Roston Chase takes 8-60 as England collapsed to a 381-run defeat on the fourth day of the First Test in Barbados.

Needing an improbable 628 runs to win and to bad out the remaining two days, England were bowled out for 246 in the evening session.

England made a positive start, reaching 134-1 before Rory Burns was dismissed for 84 on the stroke of lunch.

The defeat is England’s joint seventh-heaviest in terms of runs in Tests and sees them fall 1-0 down in the three-match series with the second Test beginning in Antigua on Thursday.
