The Black Caps have had their final official ODI prep ahead of the World Cup in May after completing a 3-0 sweep over Bangladesh yesterday.

And so begins the speculation around who will make the squad which will be announced in April. The Black Caps face Sri Lanka in their first match of the tournament.

The biggest selection issues seem to be around Martin Guptill's opening partner, whether Colin Munro should be in or out, selection of a second spinner in the squad, the all-rounder spots and who will be the wicketkeeper.

Here's who should make the squad according to the experts:
