New Zealand: New Zealand will make at least 10 changes to the team that last played the T20I. Ajaz can lead a three-man spin attack, which means McConchie and Ravindra’s debut. In the case of the opening game of the series, New Zealand can choose the experienced pace attack instead of the inexperienced spin attack.
Playing XI: Rachin Ravindra, Tom Blundell, Will Young, Colin de Grandhomme, Tom Latham(w/c), Henry Nicholls, Cole McConchie, Doug Bracewell, Ajaz Patel, Blair Tickner, Jacob Duffy
