Unlike Auckland’s multi-purpose stadium, Seddon Park is a cricket-specific venue with more traditional boundary dimensions. That said, runs come pretty freely on a true batting surface – in 2012, it was the venue for Richard Levi to score what was then the fastest T20 hundred, off 45 balls. While Cyclone Gita is set to bring more wet weather to New Zealand over the coming days, the forecast is clear for Sunday. Morgan has declared himself fit to return after missing the last two games, with James Vince likely to make way. The recurrence of Liam Plunkett’s hamstring problem means a change to the attack, Tom Curran the obvious replacement. New Zealand will hope to have Mitchell Santner available, having missed the Eden Park carnage with a knee issue. Ben Wheeler was taken out of the attack for bowling two high full-tosses on Friday and, after conceding 64 runs from 3.1 overs, could well be taken out of the firing line in Hamilton.
