West Indies captain Darren Sammy won the toss and decided to bat first against Zimbabwe in the second and final T20 international at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua on Sunday.

Following their resounding eight-wicket win in the first match on Saturday, the hosts drafted fast bowler Shannon Gabriel and all-rounder Christopher Barnwell into their final eleven with pacer Tino Best and batsman Darren Bravo making way.

Still in search of their first win after four international matches so far on the tour, Zimbabwe have made a straight swap of seamers, Tendai Chatara replacing Kyle Jarvis.

Zimbabwe: Brendan Taylor (capt), Vusi Sibanda, Chamu Chibhabha, Hamilton Masakadza, Craig Ervine, Malcolm Waller, Tinotenda Mutombodzi, Prosper Utseya, Tendai Chatara, Natsai M'Shangwe, Chris Mpofu.

Umpires: Joel Wilson (WIS) and Gregory Brathwaite (WIS)
