West Indies captain Jason Holder won the toss and elected to bat in the delayed day/night first one-day worldwide against at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

Earlier, the toss was delayed because of incessant rains which left the outfield wet.

Two bowlers could now bowl a maximum of nine overs and the rest up to eight apiece.

A softening in relations between the West Indies players and their board mean the likes of Chris Gayle and Marlon Samuels are back in worldwide jerseys and the latter of that duo could provide one of the spiciest sub-plots as he resumes battle with Ben Stokes.

This is England's first ODI match since their eight-wicket Champions Trophy semi-final defeat by eventual tournament winners Pakistan in Cardiff on June.

Having inspected at 1pm - half an hour after the scheduled start - the officials, Tim Robinson and Simon Fry, opted to look again at 2pm and better news emerged when they decided a 42-over match would start at 2.30pm. A failure to do so would mean that Windies, the 1975 and 1979 world champions, can not overtake Sri Lanka, now No. 8 in the ODI rankings.

Along with England captain Eoin Morgan there are several players who will play against West Indies.
