PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad and Tobago: The fifth and the final Test between the West Indies and England ended in a draw here at the Queen’s Park Oval stadium on Wednesday but the hosts won the five-match series 1-0.
England resumed their second innings at 80-3 and Kevin Pietersen reached his hundred from just 88 balls when he flicked Lionel Baker through backward square leg for a single, as he led England's charge for quick runs.
But he was dismissed off the third-last ball before lunch, when he was caught at deep mid-wicket off Fidel Edwards pulling a short, rising ball. Pietersen had added 106 for the fifth wicket with Matt Prior in a sensational hour and 15 minutes of batting.
He had reached his 50 from 42 balls with the fifth of his nine fours off left-arm spin bowler Hinds, and Prior soon celebrated his 50 from 39 balls, when he turned a ball from Simmons into mid-wicket and picked a single.
But Prior, who was named Man-of-the-Match, was bowled for 61, when Baker extracted his middle-stump, and West Indies were able to slow things down a bit more.
Earlier, England had lost Collingwood in the fifth over of the morning, when he was caught and bowled by Hinds for nine.
England declared during lunch setting the West Indies 240 for victory from a minimum of 66 overs and visitors’ bowlers put in a big effort but the home team resisted strongly to finish on 114 for eight when time ran out.
Graeme Swann was the pick of the England bowlers with three wickets for 13 runs from 21 overs, Jimmy Anderson snared three for 24 from 16 overs, and Monty Panesar bagged two for 34 from 19.5 overs.
The result meant England lost the five-Test series 0-1, following an innings and 23-run defeat in the opening Test at Sabina Park in Jamaica, where they bowled England out for their third-lowest total in Tests of 51.
This was followed by the aborted second Test at the Vivian Richards Cricket Ground in Antigua, and drawn Tests at the Antigua Recreation Ground and Kensington Oval.
The result also means that the visitors surrender the Wisden Trophy, symbol of Test supremacy between the two sides.
