New Zealand won the toss and elected to bat in the final of the Vitality T20I Tri-Series at Chelmsford.

England won both the earlier encounters between the two sides in the series and have named an unchanged side from the team that defeated New Zealand at Bristol on Thursday.

New Zealand made three changes for the final, bolstering their bowling by bringing in quick bowler Lea Tahuhu, offspinner Leigh Kasperek and allrounder Anna Peterson to replace Hannah Rowe, Kate Ebrahim and Bernadine Bezuidenhout.

Both sides will be treating this match as a valuable test of nerves under pressure ahead of the Women’s World T20 in November.

England: Danielle Wyatt, Tammy Beaumont, Sarah Taylor (wk), Natalie Sciver, Heather Knight (capt), Katherine Brunt, Amy Jones, Anya Shrubsole, Sophie Ecclestone, Katie George, Danielle Hazell

New Zealand: Suzie Bates(capt), Sophie Devine, Katey Martin(wk), Amy Satterthwaite, Maddy Green, Jess Watkin, Amelia Kerr, Leigh Kasperek, Anna Peterson, Hayley Jensen, Lea Tahuhu
