Australia captain Aaron Finch will play his 146th and final One-Day International when the Aussies face New Zealand at 2.20pm AEST.
The out-of-form skipper announced he would retire from ODI cricket after this third and final match of the series, hoping to go out with a victory that would seal a clean sweep.
The 35-year-old has struck just one half-century from 13 innings this year and been sent packing for a duck five times.

Speaking to Fox Cricket ahead of Sunday’s game, Finch said he is “very comfortable” with the decision and ready to go off on a high note.
“It’s the right time,” he said.
“It’s time for someone else to take the team in a new direction, in the direction they want to go in. It’s been a good ride and I wouldn’t change it for anything.”
New Zealand won the toss and chose to bowl first, with captain Kane Williamson telling Fox Cricket his side is still “trying to get familiar with the surface”.
“It tends to skit on a little bit,” he added.
“Having said that, I think there is something in it for bowlers all-long match. We’ll just make use of it first up to try and put the ball in the right areas.”
Finch said he also would have “probably” chose to bowl if he had won the toss but welcomed the chance for Australia’s top order to test itself after struggles throughout the series.
“I was pretty happy to lose it, it was one of those ones where I probably would have bowled if I had won the toss but not too disappointed,” he said.
“I think it is an area our top order needs to keep doing better.”
Injured all-rounder Marcus Stoinis was Saturday ruled out while David Warner was released from the squad to rest, with Josh Inglis and Cameron Green joining the side.
Stoinis lasted just six balls with the bat and bowled only three overs in the second ODI in Cairns on Thursday that Australia won by 113 runs.
With the three-match series wrapped up and Sunday’s final game a dead rubber, he will go for treatment on a low-level side strain.
“Stoinis will undergo treatment in rehabilitation in Perth leading into the tour of India,” a three-game T20 series later this month, Cricket Australia said.
Pace bowler Nathan Ellis, who has played three ODIs, was drafted in as a replacement.
Opener Warner was given time off “considering a heavy workload over the next 12 months and the series being secured”.
As for New Zealand, Finn Allen comes in for Martin Guptill, while Glenn Phillips replaces Michael Bracewell and Lockie Ferguson is a late addition in the place of Matt Henry.
