Aaron Finch leads against Kiwis in his final one-day international


Aaron Finch will waste little time in getting involved in his final one-day international in Cairns.

The 35-year-old will open the batting for Australia after New Zealand won the toss and elected to field in the third and final match of their ODI series.

Finch announced his retirement from the 50-over format on Saturday after his side had already won the first two matches against the Black Caps.

Josh Inglis replaces David Warner who was released due to a heavy workload ahead, while Cameron Green returns to the side in place of Marcus Stoinis (side strain).

The Kiwis have made three changes to the side who lost on Thursday with Martin Guptill, Michael Bracewell and Matt Henry replaced by Lockie Ferguson, Finn Allen and Glenn Phillips.

The dead-rubber at Cazalys Stadium is scheduled to begin at 2.20pm AEST.

Australia: Aaron Finch (capt), Steve Smith, Alex Carey, Marnus Labuschagne, Glenn Maxwell, Sean Abbott, Cameron Green, Josh Inglis Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood.

New Zealand: Finn Allen, Devon Conway, Kane Williamson (capt), Tom Latham, Daryl Mitchell, Glenn Phillips, James Neesham, Mitchell Santner, Lockie Ferguson, Tim Southee, Trent Boult.
