Itinerary for India’s Tour of New Zealand Announced
The itinerary for India’s tour of New Zealand has been announced. Team India will play five One Day Internationals and three T20 Internationals against the Blackcaps in January next year.
The first One-Dayer will take place on January 23 while the last T20I will be played on 10 February. Thus, India will straightway travel to New Zealand as their Australia’s tour will be completed on 18 January.
Hectic Schedule for India.
Meanwhile, New Zealand home summer will begin against Sri Lanka on 15 December. Both the teams will play two Test matches, three One-Dayers, and one T20I. After the completion of the series against India, New Zealand will face Bangladesh in three One Dayers and three Test matches. The first One-Dayer will take place on February 13.
Therefore, New Zealand home summer will comprise the Asian teams.
The second T20I at Auckland against India will begin an hour earlier as compared to the first and third match. However, New Zealand Cricket’s chief operating officer Anthony Crummy said the board wanted to schedule more matches at Auckland.
“NZC would’ve liked to have scheduled more India matches at Eden Park in Auckland but was unable to do so because of restrictions at the venue,” NZC’s chief operating officer Anthony Crummy said.
Thus, India’s schedule is going to stay hectic. India will play the Asia Cup after the conclusion of the ongoing England tour. After the end of Asia Cup, India will host the Windies for the two Test matches, five One-Dayers, and three T20Is.
Subsequently, India will embark on their journey of Australia tour. Virat Kohli’s men will play three One Dayers, four Test matches, and three T20 Internationals.
When New Zealand had toured India last year, the hosts had won the ODI and T20I series by 2-1.
