Story highlights

West Indies are unchanged following a 26-run win in the second match in Barbados on Friday which levelled the series at 1-1.

England captain Eoin Morgan won the toss and chose to field first against the West Indies in the rain-delayed third One-Day International of a five-match series at the National Stadium in Grenada on Monday.

West Indies are unchanged following a 26-run win in the second match in Barbados on Friday which levelled the series at 1-1.

As expected England have brought Chris Woakes back into the team in place of fellow all-rounder Tom Curran.

They were forced into an additional change though with Ben Stokes sustaining an ankle injury at practice. His place in the middle-order has been taken by Alex Hales.

With an additional rain delay following the loss of an hour before the toss, there is now likely to be a reduction in the number of overs to be played from the scheduled 50 overs per side.

Teams: West Indies - Jason Holder (capt), Chris Gayle, John Campbell, Shai Hope (wkt), Darren Bravo, Shimron Hetmyer, Carlos Brathwaite, Ashley Nurse, Devendra Bishoo, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas.

England - Eoin Morgan (capt), Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Alex Hales, Jos Buttler (wkt), Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, Liam Plunkett, Mark Wood.
