The New Zealand cricket selectors have included a number of players who've been out of action for a while for this morning's Twenty20 World Cup warmup match against Ireland in Guyana.

The Canterbury batsman Rob Nicol makes his debut at the top of the order along with Jessie Ryder who has been out of action for most of the summer through injury.

The rest of the side is Martin Guptill, Scott Styris, Gareth Hopkins, Dan Vettori, Jacob Oram, Nathan McCullum, Kyle Mills, Ian Butler and Tim Southee.

The latest score we have is New Zealand 10 without loss after the first over.

New Zealand have another warmup match against the West Indies before their opening World Cup match against sri Lanka on Saturday.
