ST. GEORGE'S, Grenada (AP) Inspired by James Anderson's fiery burst with the second new ball and his brilliance in the field, England defeated the West Indies by nine wickets on the last day Saturday of the second cricket test.

Anderson's three wickets for 16 in eight overs, allied to his two catches and a sharp, direct hit run out, triggered a stunning West Indies collapse from 202-2 at the start of the day, with a lead of 37, to 307 all out.

As England set out for the winning goal of 143, Jonathan Trott was bowled in fast bowler Shannon Gabriel's opening over without scoring. Captain Alastair Cook, unbeaten on 59, and Garry Ballance, 81 not out and dropped twice, completed the job against lackluster bowling with an unbroken partnership of 142.
