Toss Report: Sri Lanka won the toss and elected to bowl in the one-off Twenty20 match against New Zealand in Auckland Friday.

It is Sri Lanka's last chance to notch a win on their tour after losing all three one-day matches and finishing the two-Test series with a loss and a draw.

After winning the Test and ODI series' 1-0 and 3-0 respectively, New Zealand will look to clinch the one-off T20I. AFP

"We'll see what the bowlers can do and then the batsmen can chase it down," captain Lasith Malinga said after winning the toss.

Tim Southee, leading New Zealand while Kane Williamson is rested, said he would also have bowled first but "it looks like a good surface so hopefully we can make good use of it.

"It has been a great start to the season and hopefully we can keep the momentum going."

Scott Kuggeleijn makes his debut for New Zealand and Mitchell Santner returns from an injury lay off while for Sri Lanka Danushka Gunathilaka is injured with Kusal Perera moving up to opener.
