England captain Joe Root has been praised for his response to sledging during an worldwide test match.

While Gabriel's initial comment was not picked up by the stump microphone, umpires Rod Tucker and Kumar Dharmasena warned the West Indian for foul and abusive language.

"Sometimes people say things on the field that they might regret, but they should stay on the field".

Hussain, also a Sportsmail columnist, said: 'I don't know who said what to whom. but boy do I applaud Joe Root's reaction here.

The England star said: "It's Test cricket and [Shannon] is an emotional guy trying to do everything he can to win a Test match".

Root is heard saying: "Don't use it as an insult".

England claimed a consolation 232-run victory over West Indies despite Roston Chase's unbeaten 102 on the fourth day of the final Test in St Lucia. "There's nothing wrong with being gay".

Facing an improbable victory target of 485 after England declared their second innings on 361 for five after 25 minutes of play, West Indies suffered an early blow when left-hander John Campbell edged a drive at the third ball of the innings from Anderson to be brilliantly caught by Moeen Ali at gully, without scoring.

He added after the close of day three: "You're playing Test cricket, people will look at this game as a dead rubber but it certainly doesn't feel like that when you're playing for your country - everything counts, every opportunity counts".

"The guys understand the legacy of West Indies cricket and they want to continue to inspire the next generation of cricketers to play the game".

"The battle was a good contest".

Anderson has been given a heavy workload in the Caribbean and has struggled since taking 5-46 the first Test, but he spent time on Monday working with bowling coach Chris Silverwood to tighten up his action.

Root scored an unbeaten century as England piled up a 448-run lead at stumps on day three.

When captain Joe Root nicked one behind on 15 from 54 balls, he was out to Alzarri Joseph for a third straight time. "I could have seen the amusing side of it but I also said to myself not to look at it as a big opportunity, just try to let it go and make sure I was not out at the end of the day". "It was a good job I didn't take my pads off", he said after with a smile.
