London - England captain Alastair Cook won the toss and elected to field against the West Indies in the second one-day international at The Oval on Tuesday.

England were unchanged from the side that won by 114 runs under the Duckworth/Lewis method at Southampton on Saturday to go 1-0 up in the three-match series.

The West Indies made two changes with opener Chris Gayle back after 15 months out of international action following a dispute with Caribbean cricket chiefs after Darren Bravo was sidelined from the rest of the tour with a hip problem.

Fast bowler Tino Best took the place of Andre Russell after the all-rounder suffered a shoulder injury while batting at Southampton.

A minute's silence in memory of Tom Maynard, the Surrey and England Lions batsman who died aged just 23 on Monday, was set to take place before the start.
