Here are the teams 

Australia have won the toss and will bat first. 

3:46pm - Aussie pace bowler Kane Richardson has been quarintined after reporting illness.

Hello folks and welcome to the live commentary of the first Chappell-Hadlee One Day International from the Sydney Cricket Ground.

It's going to be quite surreal for the players with news breaking earlier today that the game will be played behind closed doors, due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic

There are serious concerns that the final two games of the series and the T20 series, which is set to be staged in New Zealand later this month, will be officially cancelled in the coming days. 

From a pure cricket perspective, the Blackcaps will be looking to bury the demons of the test series whitewash that concluded at the same ground in January. 

Australia are coming off a series whitewash themselves at the hands of South Africa where their batsman let them down.

The first ball is scheduled for 435pm. 


New Zealand: (To be selected from) - Kane Williamson (c), Henry Nicholls, Martin Guptill, Ross Taylor, Colin de Grandhomme, James Neesham, Tom Blundell, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Tom Latham, Kyle Jamieson, Lockie Ferguson, Matt Henry, Tim Southee and Trent Boult 

Australia: (To be selected from) - Aaron Finch (c), David Warner, Marnus Labuschagne, Steve Smith, D'Arcy Short, Mitchell Marsh, Matthew Wade, Alex Carey, Adam Zampa, Ashton Agar, Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins, Kane Richardson, Mitchell Starc 

Pre-match banter: Aussies must let bats do the talking 

Aaron Finch has told Australia's batsmen they need to build more match-winning totals, as they attempt to end their one-day form slump against New Zealand.

The hosts will enter their final three games of the home summer off five straight losses, after defeats on the road to South Africa and India.

Australia scored at a run-rate of less than one a ball in the last four of those games, as they struggled on the slower wickets in South Africa.

Another slow wicket is expected at the Sydney Cricket Ground for games on Friday and Sunday, given the matches are the latest in the summer played at the venue, outside of a World Cup, since 1983.

But Finch said Australia's top three of himself, David Warner and Steve Smith had to accept the onus of piloting the hosts to bigger scores.

"At the end of the day, it comes down to the top three," Finch said. "As experienced players, Dave, myself and Steve haven't got as many runs as we should have - that's where the buck stops.

"And probably [we need to take] that next step from 260 or 280 totals to getting match-winning totals on the board."

Finch is likely to stick with a similar team that played most of the series in South Africa for the two games in Sydney.

Mitch Marsh would therefore remain at No.6 and as the legitimate allrounder, with D'Arcy Short and Marnus Labuschagne chipping in overs as extra spinners.

Short showed signs of promise, with the best series of his international career to date in the 3-0 loss to the Proteas, while Marsh is preferred ahead of Ashton Agar.

"I'm keen to give them as long as possible," Finch said. "If you look at our last 20 games, that middle-order combination hasn't been very stable.

"The fact is they haven't played a lot of cricket together in terms of batting partnerships and trying to know each other's games.

"So you give guys as long as you can, while finding that balance of forming partnerships and strong relationships out in the middle."

Meanwhile, New Zealand are toying with the idea of playing two spinners, with Mitchell Santner set to be thrown back into the lion's den, after his horror test summer in Australia.

The left-arm finger spinner took 1/250 across the first two tests of the series, before being dropped for Sydney, but captain Kane Williamson insisted there'd be no lingering issues.

"Mitch is one of the best white-ball spinners in the world," Williamson said. "It's just about adjusting his game back to white-ball cricket.

"He is a large part of our team and bowling attack."
