Matthew Wade will be the third wicketkeeper to captain Australia in ODIs

What to expect: The forecast is for plenty of sunshine in Auckland thus runs should be in the offering. The conditions should also be favourable to the quicks with the ball likely to move around.

New Zealand possible squad: 1 Martin Guptill, 2 Tom Latham (wk), 3 Kane Williamson (capt), 4 Ross Taylor, 5 Neil Broom, 6 Colin Munro,

7 James Neesham, 8 Mitchell Santner, 9 Tim Southee, 10 Matt Henry/Lockie Ferguson, 11 Trent Boult.

Australia possible squad: 1 Aaron Finch, 2 Shaun Marsh, 3 Peter Handscomb, 4 Travis Head, 5 Glenn Maxwell, 6 Matthew Wade (capt & wk), 7 James Faulkner, 8 Mitchell Starc, 9 Pat Cummins, 10 Adam Zampa, 11 Josh Hazlewood.

"Steven and David have put their stamp on the team; it's just about me keeping driving those messages through to the players. We've performed really well in one-day cricket over a period of time, so it's not about trying to change too much, it's about keeping the ball rolling." Matthew Wade on leading Australia in the absence of Smith and Warner.
