Bridgetown - England captain Eoin Morgan won the toss and chose to bat first against the West Indies in the day/night second One-Day International of the five-match series at Kensington Oval in Barbados on Friday.

LIVE: West Indies v England, 2nd ODI

Buoyed by a successful pursuit of a target of 361 to win the first match by six wickets two days earlier at the same venue, England have made one change to that winning team with Tom Curran replacing fellow seam bowling all-rounder Chris Woakes.

Apart from catches missed, the West Indies were obviously concerned about the potency of their bowling attack in the first match and have drafted in left-arm seamer Sheldon Cottrell in place of Nicholas Pooran for this encounter.
