James Neesham (10-1-31-5):

I went again to doing what I do well - simply attempted to hit the deck laborious as possible. I had now not bowled well in the first couple of video games, so wanted to come out and put a performance on. They did put us under drive at the start but it's satisfying to bowl them out. It is a gorgeous excellent wicket and if the rest it has gotten faster after the rain wreck. We simply wanted to stay it in the fitting areas, we did not get a whole lot of rewards up top but you simply have to stick with it and hope you get it finished. We do not need the outcome yet, we still have to go out there and chase those runs. It is set doing your job, myself and Colin (de Grandhomme) as the allrounders, we have now got at the side of us four international class operators on the other finish, simply have to get in the course of the overs. You by no means totally assured. We know they have a few robust bowlers, so it up to Gups (Guptill) and Colin (Munro) to go out and get started strongly and we can see how we go from there.

Noor Ali and Hazratullah Zazai to open the batting for Afghanistan whilst Matt Henry has the new ball for New Zealand


New Zealand are unchanged whilst there are three changes in the Afghan aspect. Dawlat Zadran is being rested with Aftab Alam coming in. Noor Ali Zadran replaces his nephew Mujeeb Zadran and Ikram Ali Khil comes in place of injured Shahzad, who is already dominated out of the match.


Gulbadin Naib: Honestly I might have batted first. It seems like a excellent wicket. The surface would possibly not matter much, we need to play sure cricket on the finish of the day. We have three changes - Dawlat is resting and Aftab is available in, Noor Ali performs his first recreation and I forgot the remaining trade. We wish to do not anything different. We have to get a excellent get started and now not give away wickets in the first 10 overs.

Kane Williamson: We are going to have a bowl. A recent wicket and looks a excellent one. It is sweet to have a few wins in entrance of us. But we need to adapt to the new floor and new surface. It was tough but it surely was great to get across the line. They are all monitoring very well.
