    Anderson's finale, Atkinson takes 12 wickets on debut & England thrash West Indies at Lord's

    Anderson's finale, Atkinson takes 12 wickets on debut & England thrash West Indies at Lord's

    Yas Rana and Phil Walker reflect on the first Test of the English summer, which saw James Anderson's illustrious career come to an end as England thrashed West Indies by an innings and 114 runs.

    Off the field, there's discussion about the Test as a spectacle, the huge disparity between the two teams financially, what more can be done to help West Indies and whether Lord's is a good Test venue.

    Back on the field, there's chat about Gus Atkinson's remarkable debut and a promising start to life in the Test arena for Jamie Smith.

    We'll have more reaction on next week's regular Wisden Cricket Weekly Podcast.
