Mark Wood, who missed the Ashes series through injury, has trained ahead of the game which gets underway at 1am GMT.
He took part in a nets session, however after having a scan on his ankle on Monday, it is unclear whether he will be fit to start.
Meanwhile, Kane Williamson is set to miss the second ODI because of a hamstring strain.
Tim Southee is likely to take over the captaincy.
England lost the opener in Hamilton by three wickets and will be desperate to bounce back.
Chris Woakes thinks England will recover and turn around the series.
He said: “We know we’ve gone behind in series before and come back strongly.
“I think we’ve got the characters in the dressing room to know that the other day wasn’t a train smash by any means.”
Meanwhile, Jos Buttler is glad that England have Ben Stokes back in the fold.
He said: “It’s fantastic to have him back.
“He always puts in performances – and I’m sure, having got that game out of the way, he’ll go from strength to strength throughout the series.
“His infectious personality rubs off on people – he demands the best from (us).
“So just having him back around is a great asset to the group.”
