Ross Taylor admitted New Zealand may need to be quick to adapt if the inclement weather leads to a delay or shortened fixture against India at Trent Bridge.
The Black Caps, who have started the World Cup with three victories from as many games, could welcome back experienced seamer Tim Southee following his recovery from a calf injury.
Whether he makes his first appearance of the tournament may depend on the conditions, with rain in Nottingham preventing New Zealand from training outdoors on Wednesday afternoon.
The forecast for Thursday does not look promising but Taylor insists the Kiwis will be prepared for whatever the elements throw at them.
"We haven't seen the wicket," Taylor said. "We'll have to wait and see. Everyone will be prepared to play. There's a full 15 to choose from.
"I guess we can't look too far ahead, but there are obviously different permutations, a different balance of squad if the weather does play a part, whether it's a reduced game or a 50-over game.
"That's something the coach and captain will have to decide at the time, but we haven't made a decision on our final XI."
Rain has led to the abandonment of three fixtures in the space of five days and Taylor admitted New Zealand are braced for their share of bad fortune.
He added: "I said at the start of the tournament that luck is going to play a part. With the weather, England is a beautiful place, but it's not famous for good weather.
"I'm sure there are going to be rained out games that could affect us along the way. In saying that, there have been times where forecasts have been wrong. Hopefully tomorrow is one."
While Taylor and captain Kane Williamson have made significant contributions with the bat in their most recent wins over Bangladesh and Afghanistan, there have been a couple of mix-ups when running between the wickets.
They have so far avoided a farcical run-out but Taylor acknowledged it is a weakness between the pair.
"As long as they're only nearly (run-outs), that's OK," Taylor said. "It's not a new thing with Kane. We've been a poor for a while."
