Antigua - West Indies captain Dwayne Bravo has won the toss and chose to bowl against England in the deciding third and final one-day international at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua on Wednesday.

With the series locked at 1-1 following England's three-wicket win in the second match on Sunday, both sides made one change.

Marlon Samuels returns at the expense of Kirk Edwards for the West Indies while Eoin Morgan replaces Luke Wright in the England side.

After earlier indications that a different surface would be prepared, this match is being played on the same pitch to the one used for the first two fixtures.

Despite some preparation moisture, it is still expected to offer considerable assistance to the slow bowlers.Teams:

West Indies: Dwayne Smith, Kieran Powell, Darren Bravo, Marlon Samuels, Lendl Simmons, Dwayne Bravo (captain), Denesh Ramdin, Darren Sammy, Sunil Narine, Nikita Miller, Ravi Rampaul.

England: Michael Lumb, Moeen Ali, Ben Stokes, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan, Jos Buttler, Ravi Bopara, Tim Bresnan, Stuart Broad (captain), James Tredwell, Stephen Parry.
