Jeff Wilson has been included in New Zealand's team for the first game of the three-match series against the FICA World XI to be played at the Jade Stadium in Christchurch tomorrow. Wilson will make his first appearance for the national team in 12 years while Craig McMillan, who joined the squad after Jacob Oram was withdrawn from the first match because of a back strain, was named as the 12th man.

The rest of the team was on expected lines with two specialist medium pacers in Daryl Tuffey and Kyle Mills and a powerful batting line-up backing them up. The three matches will be played on January 22, 24 and 26, and proceeds from the games will go towards providing relief to the victims of the tsunami disaster which hit south Asia on December 26.
