St. George's - England captain Eoin Morgan won the toss and chose to field first against the West Indies in the rain-delayed third One-Day International of a five-match series at the National Stadium in Grenada on Monday.

LIVE: West Indies v England, 3rd ODI

West Indies are unchanged following a 26-run win in the second match in Barbados on Friday which levelled the series at 1-1.

As expected England have brought Chris Woakes back into the team in place of fellow all-rounder Tom Curran.

They were forced into an additional change though with Ben Stokes sustaining an ankle injury at practice. His place in the middle-order has been taken by Alex Hales.

With an additional rain delay following the loss of an hour before the toss, there is now likely to be a reduction in the number of overs to be played from the scheduled 50 overs per side.

Teams:

West Indies

Jason Holder (capt), Chris Gayle, John Campbell, Shai Hope (wkt), Darren Bravo, Shimron Hetmyer, Carlos Brathwaite, Ashley Nurse, Devendra Bishoo, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas.

England

Eoin Morgan (capt), Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Alex Hales, Jos Buttler (wkt), Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, Liam Plunkett, Mark Wood.

Umpires: Paul Wilson (AUS), Nigel Duguid (GUY)

Match Referee: Andy Pycroft (ZIM)
