New Zealand team/playing XI
MJ Guptill, C Munro, KS Williamson (c), GD Phillips †, TC Bruce, AK Kitchen, MJ Santner, DAJ Bracewell, TG Southee, IS Sodhi,
West Indies team/playing XI
CH Gayle, CAK Walton †, ADS Fletcher, SD Hope, SO Hetmyer, CR Brathwaite (c), R Powell, AR Nurse, RR Emrit, JE Taylor, S Badree.
All three completed T20Is at this venue have been won by the team batting first. But the possibility of rain and early swing could tempt the captain into bowling first, as Carlos Brathwaite did on Monday. West Indies, on the other hand, might consider bringing back Taylor for Kesrick Williams, who has leaked 76 runs in five overs. After being rested for the first two T20s, Boult is set to return to the team, possibly in place of Doug Bracewell.
Highlights will be available after end of the play.
Match Timings: 19.00 start, First Session 19.00-20.15, Interval 20.15-20.35, Second Session 20.35-21.55
