West Indies captain Darren Sammy has won the toss and put Zimbabwe in to bat in the second and final Test at Windsor Park in Dominica on Wednesday.

Seeking their sixth consecutive Test match victory, the home side have retained the same team that won the first test in Barbados by nine wickets.

Zimbabwe, who are attempting to end a run of six defeats in a row in international matches on this tour, have replaced experienced left-arm spinner Ray Price with former captain and off-spinner Prosper Utseya.

Sean Williams comes into the team due to the unavailability of Regis Chakabva, who sustained a finger injury wicketkeeping during the first test. Skipper Brendan Taylor will do duties behind the stumps in his absence.

West Indies: Darren Sammy (capt), Chris Gayle, Kieran Powell, Darren Bravo, Marlon Samuels, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Denesh Ramdin, Shane Shillingford, Kemar Roach, Tino Best, Shannon Gabriel

Zimbabwe: Brendan Taylor (capt), Vusi Sibanda, Tino Mawoyo, Hamilton Masakadza, Craig Ervine, Malcolm Waller, Sean Williams, Tendai Chatara, Prosper Utseya, Kyle Jarvis, Graeme Cremer

Umpires: Ranmore Martinesz (SRI), Tony Hill (NZL)

TV Umpire: Bruce Oxenford (AUS)

Match referee: Jeff Crowe (NZL)
