South Africa captain Graeme Smith won the toss on Monday and chose to bat first against the West Indies in the second one-day international at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium.

The South Africans made one change to the team that won the opening one-dayer convincingly on Saturday, batsman Alviro Petersen coming in at the expense of left-hander JP Duminy. The West Indies' sole change saw Dale Richards replacing the out-of-form Andre Fletcher at the top of the order.

The teams:

West Indies: Chris Gayle (captain), Dale Richards, Dwayne Bravo, Ramnaresh Sarwan, Narsingh Deonarine, Kieron Pollard, Denesh Ramdin (wicket-keeper), Darren Sammy, Nikita Miller, Jerome Taylor, Ravi Rampaul.

South Africa: Graeme Smith (captain), Hashim Amla, Jacques Kallis, A.B. de Villiers (wicket-keeper), Alviro Petersen, David Miller, Johan Botha, Ryan McLaren, Dale Steyn, Morne Morkel, Lonwabo Tsotsobe.

Umpires: Clyde Duncan, Guyana, and Daryl Harper, Australia. Third umpire: Norman Malcolm, Jamaica. Match referee: Roshan Mahanama.
