Both Australia and the West Indies named unchanged line-ups for the second one-day international at the WACA Ground on Sunday.

West Indies skipper Darren Sammy won the toss and elected to bowl, with the visitors eager to make up for their embarrassing nine-wicket loss in the series opener.

In that match, the West Indies were skittled for 70 after electing to bat first, with Australia reaching the victory target in just 9.2 overs.

Xavier Doherty has again been named 12th man for Australia, with Johnson Charles to carry the drinks for the visitors.

Left-arm paceman Mitchell Starc, who claimed 5-20 in Friday's clash, headlines a three-pronged left-arm pace attack also featuring Mitchell Johnson and James Faulkner.

All-rounder Glenn Maxwell, who scored an unbeaten 51 off 35 balls on Friday, said Australia were aiming to win the series 5-0.

Australia: Michael Clarke (capt), George Bailey, Aaron Finch, Phillip Hughes, Mitchell Johnson, James Faulkner, Glenn Maxwell, Clint McKay, Mitchell Starc, Matthew Wade, Usman Khawaja. Xavier Doherty (12th man)
