Andrew Strauss managed to dismiss Tino Best from a Graham Onions delivery.
The West Indies posted a first-innings score of 426 on day four of the third Test at Edgbaston as tail-ender Tino Best reached the highest ever Test score for a number 11.
The tourists resumed on 280-8 but England secured another wicket on just their second delivery as Ravi Rampaul was caught out by wicketkeeper Matt Prior.
However, the tourists' final pairing produced an impressive display as Danesh Ramdin and Best put up a stand of 143, the third highest score for a final partnership in Test cricket.
England had a glorious chance to dismiss Denesh Ramdin as Kevin Pietersen dropped a catch at gully, with the West Indies then on 327-9.
Ramdin then went on to complete a century just before the lunch break, while Tino Best set a new record for a number 11 batsman with a score of 95.
Best was then caught by Andrew Strauss on 95 from a Graham Onions delivery, while Ramdin finished on 107 as the West Indies were finally dismissed for 426.
The draw is now at 1.001, while an England win is at 1.001. Victory for the West Indies can be backed at 1.001.
