Pallekele - Sri Lanka captain Mahela Jayawardene elected to field after winning the toss against New Zealand in the third one-day international in Pallekele on Tuesday.

Sri Lanka lead 1-0 in the five-match series following their 14-run win in the second match on Sunday. The opening one-dayer was called off without a ball being bowled due to rain at the same venue.

New Zealand made two changes from the side that played the last match, bringing in fit-again Brendon McCullum and all-rounder Jacob Oram in place of Tom Latham and Andrew Ellis.

Sri Lanka retained the team.

New Zealand: Ross Taylor (capt), Rob Nicol, Brendon McCullum, Kane Williamson, James Franklin, Bradley-John Watling, Nathan McCullum, Jacob Oram, Kyle Mills, Tim Southee, Trent Boult.

Sri Lanka: Mahela Jayawardene (capt), Upul Tharanga, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Kumar Sangakkara, Angelo Mathews, Lahiru Thirimanne, Thisara Perera, Jeevan Mendis, Nuwan Kulasekara, Lasith Malinga, Rangana Herath.

Umpires: Ian Gould (ENG) and Kumar Dharmasena (SRI)

TV umpire: Ranmore Martinesz (SRI)
