NZ vs AUS Toss Prediction
Australia have won the toss three times out of four so far, so New Zealand should win this one and elected to field first in the only game they have had the option so far.
There is rain in the air in Wellington but the earlier showers should make way for a changeable afternoon.
The number of wickets to fall to spin in Wellington in this series tells a story, but generally it is just a very changeable track.
