Far from England being humbled by West Indies' fast bowlers, it was now England's turn to take the upper hand.
On the first day of the first Test in Jamaica, Devon Smith's maiden Test century, aided by Ryan Hinds' 84, helped West Indies to a respectable total of 311.
Half-centuries by Nasser Hussain and Mark Butcher gave England a 28-run first-innings lead - but then it was time for "Grievous Bodily Harmison" to turn the match.
Durham paceman Steve Harmison - at the top of his form, and later that year to be ranked as the number one bowler in Test cricket - ripped through the Windies' second innings, taking 7-12 as they were bowled out for 47 - one higher than England's 1994 total in Trinidad.
England wrapped up a 10-wicket win before lunch on day four.

Harmison resumed hostilities in the second Test in Trinidad, taking 6-61 in the first innings while fellow quick Simon Jones grabbed 5-57 in the second to set up a seven-wicket victory.

The third Test in Barbados belonged to Matthew Hoggard, although Andrew Flintoff - the fourth member of England's pace quartet - took 5-58 in the first innings, while Graham Thorpe made a century.
Hoggard's blistering hat-trick helped England wrap up victory within three days, clinching their first Test series win in the Caribbean since 1968.
