Auckland: Feb 9, 2013

New Zealand takes on England in the first of the three-match T20 series at Auckland on Saturday.

The home side will hope to have a successful series against England in a bid to improve their current T20 rankings while the visitors will come in with the confidence of doing decently well in the two-match T20 series in India and will be a lot more comfortable in favourable conditions in New Zealand.

Ross Taylor returns to the New Zealand side after sitting out of the South Africa tour after New Zealand Cricket poor handling of the former skipper. His return will add a lot of confidence to the side as they will look to get the better of England in the three-match series.

England will welcome the return of Stuart Broad who will lead the team.

England: Alex Hales, Michael Lumb, Luke Wright, Jonny Bairstow, Eoin Morgan, Jos Buttler (wk), Samit Patel, Stuart Broad (c), James Tredwell, Steven Finn, Jade Dernbach
