The Kiwis, looking to bounce back from series losses in the preceding Twenty20 and one-day internationals, left out fast bowler Tim Southee and leg-spinner Tarun Nethula, while BJ Watling and Trent Boult also miss out through injury.

Left-arm seamer Neil Wagner, born in South Africa, was included for his debut.

West Indies welcomed back fast bowler Kemar Roach and veteran Shivnarine Chanderpaul to a side confident after its limited-overs victories.

The hosts omitted opening batsman Adrian Barath and fast bowler Tino Best from their squad of 13.

Line-ups:

West Indies: Darren Sammy (captain), Chris Gayle, Kieran Powell, Assad Fudadin, Marlon Samuels, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Narsingh Deonarine, Denesh Ramdin, Sunil Narine, Kemar Roach, Ravi Rampaul.

New Zealand: Ross Taylor (captain), Martin Guptill, Daniel Flynn, Brendon McCullum, Kane Williamson, Dean Brownlie, Kruger van Wyk, Daniel Vettori, Doug Bracewell, Neil Wagner, Chris Martin.
