Mark Stoneman replaces Keaton Jennings for England's Test against West Indies

England captain Joe Root makes one change to the team for the day-night Test against West Indies, as Mark Stoneman comes in for Keaton Jennings.

England captain Joe Root has made one change to the team that defeated South Africa by bringing in Mark Stoneman for the day-night Test against West Indies.

The Surrey batsman, who has been called up ahead of Keaton Jennings, will make his debut at Edgbaston as the opening partner for Alastair Cook.

There are no places for bowlers Mason Crane and Chris Woakes in the 13-man squad, who are gearing up for the contest that begins on Thursday.

England head into the match on the back of a 3-1 series win over the Proteas, which ended with a 177-run victory in the fourth Test.

The clash against West Indies will be the first ever day-night Test to be held in England.

England 13-man squad:

Joe Root (Yorkshire, captain)
Moeen Ali (Worcestershire)
James Anderson (Lancashire)
Jonathan Bairstow (Yorkshire)
Stuart Broad (Nottinghamshire)
Alastair Cook (Essex)
Dawid Malan (Middlesex)
Toby Roland-Jones (Middlesex)
Ben Stokes (Durham)
Mark Stoneman (Surrey)
Tom Westley (Essex)
