England captain Stuart Broad won the toss and elected to field against the West Indies in the second One-Day International (ODI) at North Sound in Antigua on Sunday.

The West Indies trumped England by 15 runs in the first ODI on Friday after the visitors squandered an excellent platform that had put them in position to take the lead in the three-match series. In reply to West Indies’ competitive total of 269 for six, England were restricted to 254 for six after cruising along merrily at 180 for two in the 37th over.

Michael Lumb‘s fluent 106 on ODI debut, only the second England player after Dennis Amiss to achieve the feat, and an opening partnership of 96 with fellow first-timer Moeen Ali (44), seemed to ensure that most of the hard work was done in pursuit of a morale-boosting victory following the harrowing tour of Australia, AFP reported.

Teams:

 

West Indies (Probable): Dwayne Smith, Kieran Powell, Kirk Edwards, Darren Bravo, Lendl Simmons, Dwayne Bravo (c), Dinesh Ramdin (wk), Darren Sammy, Jason Holder, Sunil Narine, Ravi Rampaul.

England (Probable):  Michael Lumb, Moeen Ali, Luke Wright, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler (wk), Ravi Bopara, Tim Bresnan, Chris Jordan,  Stuart Broad (c), James Tredwel.
