New Zealand captain Daniel Vettori won the toss and elected to bowl first in the deciding fifth and final one-day cricket international against England here Saturday.
England need to win to level the five-match series following the dramatic tie in the fourth game when Vettori again gambled on bowling first on a wicket seen as a batsman's paradise.
After New Zealand led 2-0, a win here to level the series would represent a morale-boosting comeback for England ahead of the three-Test series next month.
England have kept the same side which produced the tie in Napier on Wednesday while New Zealand have made two changes.
Daniel Flynn replaces out-of-form batsman Peter Fulton and off-spinner Jeetan Patel comes in for pace bowler Iain O'Brien.
The match starts at 2:00 pm (0100 GMT) with fine weather forecast throughout the day.
New Zealand: Daniel Vettori (captain), Brendon McCullum, Jesse Ryder, Daniel Flynn, Jamie How, Ross Taylor, Scott Styris, Jacob Oram, Kyle Mills, Chris Martin, Jeetan Patel.
England: Paul Collingwood (captain), Phil Mustard, Alastair Cook, Luke Wright, Ian Bell, Kevin Pietersen, Owais Shah, Dimitri Mascarenhas, Stuart Broad, Ryan Sidebottom, James Anderson.
