Beaten by four wickets in the opening match in St Lucia on Tuesday, the hosts have made one change to the final eleven with Obed McCoy, who was drafted into the squad due to the unavailability through injury of Andre Russell, replacing fellow fast bowler Oshane Thomas for his T20 International debut.

England have retained the same team from the first match as they seek victory which would give them their first series win of the tour after losing the Test battle 2-1 and squaring the One-Day International contest 2-2.
