New Zealand take on Sri Lanka in the first T20 International (T20I) at Mount Maunganui. New Zealand won the last match of the ODI series at the same location to seal the series 3-1. They will hope to get off with a winning start even in this series. New Zealand were easily the better team in the ODI series and although Sri Lanka showed some glimpse of their resistance, they could however not carry it on for longer periods of time. Sri Lanka will hope that they can salvage some pride by winning the T20I series and return home with something to show for their efforts. Live Scorecard: New Zealand vs Sri Lanka, 1st T20I at Mount Maunganui

Sri Lanka will be led by Dinesh Chandimal as their regular skipper Lasith Malinga is yet to recover from his long-term injury. Kane Williamson will lead the Kiwis in the series. Williamson will takeover the reins from Brendon McCullum, who decided to retire from all forms after the series against Australia in February. Since Williamson will be leading New Zealand in the ICC World T20 2016, this will be a good practice for him before taking over across formats.
