The Kiwis are playing the longest format after a gap of 8 months but that shouldn’t stop them from being competitive. The scoring responsibilities will fall on the shoulders of skipper Kane Williamson. Ross Taylor and Colin de Grandhomme will look to chip in as well.

In the bowling department, the pace trio of Tim Southee, Neil Wagner ad Trent Boult will be the main men while Matt Henry and Henry Nicholls will look to halt the run scoring and make crucial breakthroughs.
