New Zealand: Mitchell Santner, Kane Williamson, Ish Sodhi and Trent Boult have been the key contributors for New Zealand in the series so far.
England: Jonny Bairstow and Joe Root slammed hundreds in the Dunedin ODI. Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes are others who have played good hands with the bat. Chris Woakes has delivered with the ball.
There is too little to separate the two sides. It is an evenly poised contest that can swing either way.
