Sri Lanka captain Dinesh Chandimal won the toss and chose to bowl first on a dry Mount Maunganui track, simply citing a preference to chase. He expected the pitch to take turn, but did not think it would change in character over the 40 overs. Kane Williamson has said that he would have chosen to bat first anyway.

New Zealand:

1 Kane Williamson (capt), 2 Martin Guptill, 3 Ross Taylor, 4 Corey Anderson, 5 Colin Munro, 6 Grant Elliott, 7 Luke Ronchi (wk), 8 Mitchell McClenaghan, 9 Trent Boult, 10 Matt Henry, 11 Ish Sodhi

Sri Lanka:

1 Tillakaratne Dilshan, 2 Danushka Gunathilaka , 3 Shehan Jayasuriya, 4 Dinesh Chandimal (capt & wk), 5 Angelo Mathews, 6 Milinda Siriwardana, 7 Chamara Kapugedera, 8 Thisara Perera, 9 Nuwan Kulasekara, 10 Suranga Lakmal, 11 Jeffrey Vandersay
