New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum won the toss and chose to bowl in the virtual quarter-final in Chittagong, expecting dew to form later in the evening, though it had not arrived at toss time. Dew has influenced several Chittagong matches, with the team bowling second significantly hampered by the wet ball.

Sri Lanka made two changes to their XI. Rangana Herath replaced Ajantha Mendis, after Mendis had an expensive run in the tournament, while Lahiru Thirimanne stepped in to the middle order for the suspended Dinesh Chandimal. Lasith Malinga was captaining in his first international in Chandimal's stead.

New Zealand fielded the same XI that had comfortably defeated Netherlands on Saturday. The weather was expected to remain fine for the duration of the match.

Teams:

Sri Lanka: Tillakaratne Dilshan, Kusal Perera, Mahela Jayawardene, Kumar Sangakkara (wk), Lahiru Thirimanne, Angelo Mathews, Thisara Perera, Nuwan Kulasekara, Sachithra Senanayake, Lasith Malinga (captain), Rangana Herath.

New Zealand: Kane Williamson, Martin Guptill, Brendon McCullum (captain), Ross Taylor, James Neesham, Corey Anderson, Luke Ronchi (wk), Nathan McCullum, Trent Boult, Kyle Mills, Mitchell McClenaghan. (geo.tv)
