New Zealand To Play Day-night Test, Host India In Packed Home SeasonThe home season will begin in October in what will be New Zealand's last chance for preparation ahead of the T20 WC in Australia.

New Zealand will host India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and England in what will be a packed home summer for them this year, NZC announced on Tuesday (June 28). The women’s team will also host Bangladesh before travelling to South Africa for the ICC Women’s T20 WC.

New Zealand will be hosting England in a day-night Test in the series opener at the Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui scheduled to be played from February 16. It’s the first since 2018 where New Zealand had defeated England in Eden Park.

The home season will begin in October in what will be New Zealand’s last chance for preparation ahead of the T20 WC in Australia as they host a tri-series featuring Pakistan and Bangladesh. India will visit after the T20 WC for a three-match T20I and ODI series.

New Zealand will then embark on a visit to Pakistan and India for a brief series before returning to host England for two Tests. Post the conclusion of that series, New Zealand will host Sri Lanka for a full-fledged tour of two Tests, 3 T20Is and 3 ODIs.

New Zealand Women will host Bangladesh for three T20Is and as many ODIs before heading over to South Africa.

“Last summer’s ICC Women’s World Cup did so much to promote the game, and it will be great to see the WHITE FERNS in action right around the country,” NZC chief executive David White said. “And to have India, England and Sri Lanka touring here, on top of visits from Pakistan and Bangladesh, means cricket fans can look forward to a summer of top-quality cricket.”

“We recognise the challenges of the current environment – and our priority is to make international cricket as accessible as possible.

“After the previous seasons’ restrictions from Covid, we want to ensure our venues and fixtures remain affordable and welcoming.”
