ENG- L, W, W, L
The biggest concern for New Zealand would be the fitness of Ross Taylor. He is still not fit and if he doesn’t recover, Mark Chapman will have to take the charge. No more changes are expected in the host side.
England might want to replace Mark Wood with David Willey. Wood hasn’t looked promising since his return after injury.

Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, and Joe Root have been in good touch with the bat while Chris Woakes, Ben Stokes, and Moeen Ali have provided wickets at regular intervals.
Martin Guptill, Kane Williamson, Ross Taylor, and Mitchell Santner have played a key role with the bat while Ish Sodhi, Trent Boult, and Tim Southee have been remarkable with the ball.
With the series leveled at 2-2, this last ODI has become the series decider. An enthralling battle is expected to take place tomorrow when both the teams face each other.

And, If Ross Taylor doesn’t play tomorrow, it will be England who will enter the ground as favorites. Moreover, it’s a 50-50 contest in which anyone can turn out to be the winner.
