That left England with a meagre target of 107, and the hosts finished on 107 for one off 28 overs, to take the three-match series 2-1.

However, with his dismissal after almost four hours at the crease, the West Indies' hopes of setting England any sort of challenging target disappeared.

Anderson became the oldest to occupy the top spot since Muralitharan in 2009.

Anderson became England's leading wicket-taker in Test cricket when he passed Ian Botham's mark of 383 wickets in the Caribbean in 2015.

"Putting in his career-best figures shows he is still desperate to kick on and do more great things in this game", said Root.

"Obviously I've been talking to past players [like] Corey Collymore, guys that played in England for a couple of years so coming here I was prepared, so obviously I knew how to bowl on certain pitches - the length and stuff that was going to be crucial". But Hope's fourth ball after the interval saw him undone by a superb Anderson leg-cutter and caught behind. "This summer has been unreal for him, but I wouldn't say I'm surprised by how it has turned out".

The England cricket team celebrate after winning the test series against the West Indies at Lord's cricket ground in London on Saturday.

"Breaking your shoulder is never easy but lots of hard rehab and a lot of hours of training got me back here and I'm proud of myself to be able to come back and still perform for the West Indies". "Credit must go to our bowlers and obviously Shai was outstanding in this entire series, and Kraigg (Brathwaite) did a hell of a job too - especially at Headingley".

But the catching by both sides was poor, with all-rounder Holder adding: "We let ourselves down by dropping quite a few chances and giving good players two opportunities to bat". 'You've got to make the most of it when you are in rhythm, when you're not it can be a struggle'.
