West Indies: Chris Gayle, Johnson Charles, Dwayne Smith, Marlon Samuels, Dwayne Bravo, Kieron Pollard, Denesh Ramdin, Darren Sammy (captain), Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Ravi Rampaul.

New Zealand: Rob Nicol, Martin Guptill, Daniel Flynn, Kane Williamson (captain), Tom Latham, BJ Watling, Jacob Oram, Nathan McCullum, Tim Southee, Kyle Mills, Trent Boult.
