Rpseau - New Zealand won the toss and put West Indies in to bat in the first T20 International at Windsor Park in Dominica on Saturday.

For this first-ever meeting between the two sides in a T20 International in the Caribbean, the West Indies have left out all-rounder Christopher Barnwell and fast bowler Sheldon Cottrell from their final eleven.

Fresh from a 2-1 Test series victory, New Zealand have opted to include two specialist wicketkeeper-batsmen in B.J. Watling and Luke Ronchi in their eleven, choosing instead to leave out pacer Neil Wagner, off-spinning all-rounder Mark Craig along with Test openers Peter Fulton and Hamish Rutherford.

Teams:

West Indies - Dwayne Smith, Lendl Simmons, Andre Fletcher, Darren Bravo, Kieron Pollard, Andre Russell, Darren Sammy (captain), Denesh Ramdin, Sunil Narine, Krishmar Santokie, Samuel Badree.

New Zealand - Tom Latham, Kane Williamson, Brendon McCullum (captain), Jimmy Neesham, Ross Taylor, Corey Anderson, Luke Ronchi, B.J. Watling, Tim Southee, Ish Sodhi, Trent Boult.

Umpires: Joel Wilson (TRI), Peter Nero (TRI)

TV Umpire: Gregory Brathwaite (BAR)

Match referee: Javagal Srinath (IND)
