Mark Stoneman was 40 not out and Tom Westley 44 not out.

Earlier, James Anderson took his Test-best innings figures of seven for 42, a haul that included his 500th Test wicket, as West Indies were dismissed for 177 in their second innings.

This was the second time this series that a match had ended inside three days after England won the first Test -- the inaugural day/night Test in Britain -- by an innings and 209 runs at Edgbaston last month.

West Indies, however, then recorded a shock five-wicket win in the second Test at Headingley.
