West Indies: Kyle Mayers, Brandon King, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Rovman Powell, Kieron Pollard (capt), Fabian Allen, Jason Holder, Odean Smith, Romario Shepherd, Akeal Hosein, Sheldon Cottrell

England: Jason Roy, Tom Banton, James Vince, Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali (c), Sam Billings (wk), Phil Salt, Chris Jordan, Adil Rashid, Saqib Mahmood, Reece Topley
