Five-match series starts 12pm AEDT today from the beautiful city of Christchurch.

There's no talk of revenge from the Black Caps ahead of their first cricket meeting with England since July's contentious Cricket World Cup final.

New Zealand begin the home summer with a five-match Twenty20 series, starting at Christchurch's Hagley Oval on Friday.

Black Caps fans don't need any reminder of the last time they faced England in the controversial World Cup final at Lord's – a match that will go down as one of the greatest and eventful in one-day history.

England captured their first one-day World Cup after the teams couldn't be separated during the match or a super over. The host nation prevailed on a boundary countback (England hit 26 to 17 in the match), a rule which has since been scrapped.

Some might view this series as a chance for the Black Caps to gain redemption, but with it being a different format, vastly changed teams, and no world title on the line, it's a flawed argument.

Will be interesting to follow. Have zero idea of what NZ's team is like (the last thing I remember hearing about their T20 side is that Ish Sodhi was one of the top bowlers in the world in the format and didn't get picked up in the IPL draft.)
