Windies win toss, field against England

Bridgetown - West Indies captain Jason Holder won the toss and put England in to bat in the third and final one day international at Kensington Oval in Barbados on Thursday.

The hosts made one enforced change from the team defeated in the first two matches in Antigua with 20-year-old Alzarri Joseph replacing injured fellow pacer Shannon Gabriel.

West Indies are seeking to avoid a 3-0 whitewash in the series and desperately need rankings points to earn automatic qualification for the 2019 World Cup.

As expected, Alex Hales, who has recovered from a fractured hand sustained on the tour of India two months ago, replaces Sam Billings at the top of the English order.

Despite already winning the series, the visitors are playing their strongest available squad as they seek to maintain a winning momentum heading into the Champions Trophy at home in June.

Teams:

West Indies

Jason Holder (capt), Kraigg Brathwaite, Evin Lewis, Kieran Powell, Shai Hope, Jason Mohammed, Jonathan Carter, Carlos Brathwaite, Ashley Nurse, Devendra Bishoo, Alzarri Joseph.

England

Eoin Morgan (capt), Alex Hales, Jason Roy, Joe Root, Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes, Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, Liam Plunkett, Steven Finn.

Umpires: Gregory Brathwaite (BAR), Ruchira Palliyaguruge (SRI)

Match Referee: Jeff Crowe (NZL)
