Aug 25 (Reuters) - England captain Joe Root won the toss and chose to bat in the second test against West Indies at Headingley on Friday.

England, who won the first of the three-test series by an innings and 209 runs, made one change to that side with medium pacer Chris Woakes returning from injury in place of Toby Roland-Jones.

West Indies made two changes to their team with spinner Devendra Bishoo coming in for Alzarri Joseph and the injured seamer Miguel Cummins replaced by Shannon Gabriel.
