West Indies captain Brian Lara won the toss and elected to field in the World Cup Group D match against Zimbabwe at Sabina Park in Kingston, Jamaica on Monday.
West Indies made no changes in the team that beat Pakistan in their opening game meaning there was no place in the side for left-armer Ian Bradshaw with Corey Collymore again given the nod as the third seamer.
Zimbabwe made three changes from the team which tied with Ireland in their first match with opening bat Terry Duffin and medium pacers Gary Brent and Ed Rainsford left out.
Left-hander Friday Kasteni takes Duffin's spot in the batting line-up with seamers Tawanda Mupariwa and Anthony Ireland given a chance with the ball.
West Indies: Brian Lara (captain), Chris Gayle, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Ramnaresh Sarwan, Marlon Samuels, Denesh Ramdin (wicketkeeper), Dwayne Smith, Dwayne Bravo, Daren Powell, Jerome Taylor, Corey Collymore.
Zimbabwe: Prosper Utseya (captain), Vusi Sibanda, Friday Kasteni, Chamu Chibhabha, Sean Williams, Stuart Matsikenyeri, Elton Chigumbura, Brendan Taylor (wicketkeeper), Christopher Mpofu, Anthony Ireland, Tawanda Mupariwa.
Umpires: Ian Gould (England) and Simon Taufel (Australia)
