Both sides have suffered defeats to Australia in the first three games of the tri-series, with England losing twice in successive fixtures to fall behind in the race. New Zealand, on the other hand, will look to use the advantage of familiar conditions to notch up their first win, having suffered a seven-wicket loss to David Warner-led Australia in the tournament opener.

The focus will be on the two captains ahead of the clash, with both Kane Williamson and Eoin Morgan, captain of New Zealand and England respectively, having fitness issues to deal with. Williamson is better off between the two though, as he is likely to recover in team to lead his side on Tuesday. Morgan, who missed out on the match against Australia at Melbourne, is likely to miss out once again.

Squads:

New Zealand: Kane Williamson (c), Trent Boult, Mark Chapman, Colin de Grandomme, Martin Guptill, Anaru Kitchen, Colin Munro, Mitchell Santner, Tim Seifert, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor, Ben Wheeler

England: Eoin Morgan (c), Sam Billings, Jos Buttler (wicket-keeper), Sam Curran, Tom Curran, Liam Dawson, Alex Hales, Chris Jordan, Dawid Malan, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, James Vince, David Willey, Mark Wood.

Venue: Westpac Stadium, Wellington.
