Left-arm seamer Lonwabo Tsotsobe was ruled out with a bruised foot and his spot was taken by Charl Langeveldt.
West Indies made three changes with Ramnaresh Sarwan (hamstring) and Nikita Miller (side) ruled out through injuries.
Shivnarine Chanderpaul returned for Sarwan, while Sulieman Benn replaced Miller.
