Black Caps likely to go with same lineup

7:01 am on 17 June 2015

The New Zealand cricketers are expected to go into tonight's fourth one day international against England in Nottingham with the same playing XI used in Monday's three wicket win in Southampton.

The Black Caps lead the series 2-1 following the comfortable victory in game three.

The only possible change could be the return of Nathan McCullum as a slow bowling option, however he was expensive in the first two matches and the Trent Bridge wicket is expected to be full of runs.

He could replace fast bowler Mitchell McClenaghan has also been expensive.

England are also likely to go with the same eleven they used in Southampton.

All three venues so far have provided good batting wickets and that should continue tonight although a few showers are forecast later in the day.

England beat New Zealand the last time they played in Nottingham in 2013.

New Zealand is without strike pace bowler Trent Boult who has returned home with a back problem.
