England captain Eoin Morgan has challenged his side to show greater consistency against an "experienced" Windies team in Saturday's Twenty20 international.
The day-night match at the Emirates Riverside - live on Sky Sports Cricket at 6pm - is the first time the teams have met since Carlos Brathwaite hit four sixes off Ben Stokes to power Windies to victory in the 2016 World Twenty20 final in Kolkata.
It is also the only match between the sides in the shortest format of the game before the five-match, Sky Live ODI series which begins on Tuesday.
England won the Test series 2-1 but Morgan expects a stronger showing from the tourists in the white-ball formats as the tourists are boosted by the return of Chris Gayle, Carlos Brathwaite, Marlon Samuels, Kieron Pollard and Sunil Narine.
"They probably have a bit more experience (than their Test squad) which is great," Morgan told Sky Sports. "We want to play against the best possible side available to play in order to try and improve our game.
"We're a very young side and we have a long way to go in T20 cricket. Our consistency levels have been up and down so it's all to play for tomorrow."
While acknowledging the presence of several strong ball-strikers in West Indies' line-up, Morgan said England had batting firepower of their own.
"It's one of their strengths," he said. "It's probably one of our strengths as well. It's going to be a really exciting game."
England will be without rested all-rounders Moeen Ali and Ben Stokes, who has yet to play an international on his home ground.
Explaining the decision to Sky Sports earlier this month, Stokes said: "Being an all-forms player, it's very tough to get a rest - even if it is just two or three days here or there, it can do your body a lot of good."
Sam Billings, Mason Crane and Liam Livingstone - all in the Twenty20 squad against South Africa - failed to return their places but Surrey seamer Tom Curran does get the chance to add to his two caps to date.
Windies' white-ball preparations were hampered on Wednesday when their one-day international against Ireland was washed out without a ball bowled.
It means the tourists will have to beat England 5-0, or 4-0 in the ODI series with either a tie or a no-result, in order to qualify for the World Cup ahead of eighth-placed Sri Lanka, who are eight points up in the rankings.
Big-hitting opener Gayle was due to return to action at Stormont after being absent from ODIs during a breakdown in relations between some of the players and their employers. The left-hander made his first appearance for Windies since the World T20 Final in a nine-wicket T20 win over India in Jamaica in July, scoring 18 as opening partner Evin Lewis smashed 125 not out from 62 balls to top Gayle's record for the highest score by a West Indian in a T20 international.
Brathwaite is only making a brief stopover in England, captaining his country in Saturday's one-off T20 in Durham then heading home, and he is happy to take a hands-off approach to leadership.
"You always have different characters in your team. The guys have the freedom to go out and express themselves, make their own calls. I prefer that to guys thinking 'what would the coach or the captain want?'.
"As Caribbean players we bring a lot of flair to the game, you can see it in our wicket celebrations, the dance moves and whatnot. With bat or ball that is always the message: have fun, express yourself."
Brathwaite's squad also includes off-spinner Narine and all-rounder Pollard - as well as uncapped seamer Ronsford Beaton - but leg-spinner Samuel Badree misses out due to a "prior commitment".
England squad: E Morgan (capt), J Bairstow, J Ball, J Buttler, T Curran, L Dawson, A Hales, C Jordan, D Malan, L Plunkett, A Rashid, J Root, J Roy, D Willey.
Windies squad: C Brathwaite (captain), R Beaton, C Gayle, E Lewis, J Mohammed, S Narine, A Nurse, K Pollard, R Powell, M Samuels, J Taylor, C Walton, K Williams.
