England made two changes to a losing team as Ben Stokes and Chris Jordan returned for the third and final Twenty20 match against the West Indies at the Kensington Oval.

Luke Wright - who has a side strain - and Tim Bresnan made way, in a team which still had no place for Ian Bell.

Barbados-born seamer Jordan's call-up meant he was given a chance at what was once his home venue.

England chose to bat first, in the hope of a consolation victory in a series already lost before they head for the ICC World Twenty20 in Bangladesh.

The hosts rested Chris Gayle, Samuel Badree and Ravi Rampaul - and there was a return for the fit-again Sunil Narine.

Johnson Charles replaced Gayle, and Sheldon Cottrell - previously uncapped in this format - was in for Rampaul.
