England captain Alastair Cook won the toss and elected to bowl first in the second One-Day International (ODI) against West Indies at The Oval, London. England had won the first game between the two sides and would be looking to take a bigger lead.

Ian Bell’s classy hundred took England to a formidable score. West Indies looked up for it initially, but regular fall of wickets dented their chase and they lost the encounter comprehensively.

England haven’t changed their combination and are playing the side that beat the West Indies in the first game. Meanwhile, the tourists have been bolstered by Chris Gayle’s availability after they lost Darren Bravo to injury. Andre Russell has been replaced by Tino Best.


England: Alastair Cook(c), Ian Bell, Jonathan Trott, Ravi Bopara, Eoin Morgan, Craig Kieswetter(wk), Tim Bresnan, Stuart Broad, Graeme Swann, Steven Finn, James Anderson
