Sri Lanka - New Zealand captain Ross Taylor has won the toss and elected to bat first in the tri-series match against Sri Lanka at Rangiri Dambulla Stadium on Thursday.

Both teams have made three changes from their previous matches.

Sri Lanka spinner Ajantha Mendis comes in to replace Suraj Randiv, who was banned for one match for bowling a no-ball to deny India batsman Virender Sehwag his century.

Batsman Thilan Samaraweera and seam bowler Dilhara Fernando were dropped for Chamara Silva and Rangana Herath.

New Zealand left out Martin Guptill, Tim Southee and Andy McKay for Grant Elliot, Peter Ingram and Jacob Oram.
