REUTERS - England captain Joe Root won the toss and chose to bat in the second test against West Indies at Headingley on Friday.

England, who won the first of the three-test series by an innings and 209 runs, made one change to that side with medium pacer Chris Woakes returning from injury in place of Toby Roland-Jones.

West Indies made two changes to their team with spinner Devendra Bishoo coming in for Alzarri Joseph and the injured seamer Miguel Cummins replaced by Shannon Gabriel.

England: Alastair Cook, Mark Stoneman, Tom Westley, Joe Root (captain), Dawid Malan, Ben Stokes, Jonny Bairstow (wicketkeeper), Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Stuart Broad, James Anderson

West Indies: Kraigg Brathwaite, Kieran Powell, Kyle Hope, Shai Hope, Roston Chase, Jermaine Blackwood, Shane Dowrich (wicketkeeper), Jason Holder (captain), Kemar Roach, Devendra Bishoo, Shannon Gabriel.
