West Indies skipper Darren Sammy won the toss against Zimbabwe and elected to field first in the second Test at Roseau on Wednesday.

There was a delay in the toss due to bit of rain. West Indies have made no changes in the playing XI.

Shillingford took nine wickets in last week’s victory over Zimbabwe at Barbados. West Indies won by nine wickets in two-and-a-half days. Spin bowling was the key to West Indies success in the first Test.

For Zimbabwe, wicketkeeper Regis Chakabva has failed to recover in time from a finger injury. Skipper Brendan Taylor will take his position behind the stumps.
