England were unchanged from the side that comfortably won the series opener by seven wickets at Old Trafford on Tuesday – a match that saw Jonny Bairstow score his maiden One-Day International hundred.

West Indies, however, were without star batsman Chris Gayle – a hamstring strain suffered during the warm-up sidelining the big-hitting opener on his 38th birthday.

At an overcast Trent Bridge, long known for providing assistance to swing bowlers, paceman Miguel Cummins replaced leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo in the other change to West Indies' XI at Old Trafford.

Their defeat in Manchester meant two-time former champions West Indies could no longer gain direct entry to the 2019 World Cup in England and will now have to take part in a qualifying competition instead.

Disrespectful to Indian team if England doesn't play its best XI, says Kevin Pietersen

Kevin Pietersen said a win against India is similar to a victory against arch-rivals Australia and urged the selectors to play both Stuart Broad and James Anderson.
