Toss England won the toss and chose to bowl first vs West Indies

England’s Jos Buttler won the toss and chose to bowl first in the second ODI in Antigua, keeping the series alive for a decider in Barbados.

Buttler named an unchanged XI after England’s four-wicket loss on Sunday. Sam Curran gets an immediate opportunity to make amends after a grim first outing of the series, in which he was dispatched for 98 runs in 9.5 overs, the most expensive analysis in England’s ODI history.

West Indies’ captain Shai Hope said he would have bowled first too, on a fresh pitch that isn’t expected to differ significantly from the strip that served up more than 650 runs on Sunday. This contest is a day-night affair, meaning the conditions may be more conducive to chasing under lights.

West Indies have also named an unchanged XI, with Brandon King and Alick Athanaze set to open their batting once again, after their forceful century stand in the opening match.

West Indies: 1 Brandon King, 2 Alick Athanaze, 3 Keacy Carty, 4 Shai Hope (capt/wk), 5 Shimron Hetmyer, 6 Sherfane Rutherford, 7 Romario Shepherd, 8 Yannic Cariah, 9 Alzarri Joseph, 10 Gudakesh Motie, 11 Oshane Thomas.

England: 1 Will Jacks, 2 Phil Salt, 3 Zak Crawley, 4 Ben Duckett, 5 Harry Brook, 6 Jos Buttler (capt/wk), 7 Liam Livingstone, 8 Sam Curran, 9 Brydon Carse, 10 Rehan Ahmed, 11 Gus Atkinson.
