England humiliated in second innings

9:39 am on 8 February 2009

England have fallen to a humiliating defeat by an innings and 23 runs after being skittled for 51 by the West Indies on the fourth day of the first cricket test in Jamaica.

Jerome Taylor was the chief destroyer in the second innings rout, taking five for eleven.

Spinner Sulieman Benn also took four for 31.

Andrew Flintoff was the only batsman to make double figures, hitting 24.

The West Indies had not beaten England in 16 test meetings going back to their victory at Edgbaston in 2000.

It's England's third lowest test total ever.
