West Indies survived from four down on a very slow, flat pitch after Root set them 286 to win in 71 overs on the final day.

That England were making the running on the final day represented a decent recovery from 48 for four on the first morning, and the concession of a 64-run first innings deficit.

This was England’s first game since the Ashes, which they lost 4-0, and the sacking of head coach Chris Silverwood and the overhaul of personnel that included dropping the legendary bowlers James Anderson and Stuart Broad.

“I’m really proud of the team,” said Root. “I thought the attitude throughout the whole week was just fantastic.

“We threw everything into the game and to be in the position we were after that first hour to respond as we have done since it’s been a really pleasing performance on what turned out to be a very docile wicket which didn’t offer a huge amount for anyone really.

“But the way we applied ourselves and went about it was really pleasing and very encouraging going into the rest of series.”

England made three centuries (including one for Root), which pleased the captain, who picked out Jack Leach’s performance as another positive.

“It’ll definitely do a lot of the guys a lot of good,” said Root. “There were runs at the top of the order for Zak [Crawley], Jonny [Bairstow]’s innings and some other contributions around him as well under pressure and the way Dan [Lawrence] played today was brilliant.

“It gave us the opportunity to get that declaration a little bit sooner and really give us a sniff of trying to get a few extra overs out there.
