In cricket, India are set to take on New Zealand in a five-match T20 International series less than a week after completing a home One-Day International assignment beating Australia.

India’s tour of New Zealand begins with the first T20 match at Eden Park in Auckland tomorrow. The match will begin at 12.20 P.M. (IST).

This will be India’s first away fixture after the post-World Cup West Indies series last year and also their first all-format series after the mega event in England in July last year.

India will play five T20 matches, three ODIs and two Tests in the one and half-month long tour to New Zealand.

This will be India’s first-ever involvement in a five-match T20 series since they played their first 20-over international in South Africa back in 2006.

The first two T20 matches will be held in the high-scoring Eden Park in Auckland while the third one will be played at Hamilton. The fourth T20 encounters will be played in Wellington and the last one at Mount Maunganui.

The three-match ODI series starts from 5th of February 5 with the first match at Hamilton, followed by the second at Auckland and the third ODI at Mount Maunganui.
