Nottingham, England – England were set a target of 108 to win the second Test after dismissing the West Indies for 165 in their second innings on the fourth day at Trent Bridge here on Monday.

Tim Bresnan took four wickets for 37 runs in 17 overs, to follow his four in the first innings, and fellow seamer James Anderson four for 43 in 20.1.
