Toss: West Indies won the toss and opted to field.

The West Indies have rejected any suggestion of a Test hangover going into the opening one-day international against a New Zealand side bolstered by the return of Jesse Ryder.

Gayle remains sidelined with a hamstring injury while Ryder has been in devastating form in New Zealand domestic cricket ahead of his return to the international arena after a 22-month self-imposed exile.
