England rode high on the back of another match-winning performance by rejuvenated spinner Ashley Giles to win the second Test against West Indies.

They won by 256 runs at Edgbaston, with Giles taking 5-57 for a stunning match haul of 9-122, to add to his 9-210 in the first Test victory at Lord's.

By gaining a 2-0 lead in the series, England retained the Wisden Trophy.

Chris Gayle had a fine day in a losing cause, taking 5-34 as England were all out for 248 and then hitting 82.

But his deeds were eclipsed by Giles, who became the first English spinner since Tony Lock in 1958 to get at least nine wickets in two successive Tests.
