Team India will tour New Zealand for a limited-overs series following the ICC T20 World Cup, scheduled to take place later this year in Australia. The series will comprise three ODIs followed by as many T20I matches. The Kiwis released their summer home schedule, where it was mentioned that their maiden assignment post the T20 World Cup will be a home series against India.
Auckland, Hamilton and Christchurch will host the ODI series while the three T2OIs will be played in Wellington, Tauranga and Napier. Alongside India, Sri Lanka and England will also tour New Zealand.
NZC chief executive David White in a statement said, “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 actions right around the country.”
“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,” he added.
India beat New Zealand 3-0 in the last three-match T20I series played between the two countries. The series was played after the 2021 T20I World Cup in UAE. New Zealand emerged 3-0 victors in the last three-match ODI series played between the two nations back in 2020.

The Kiwis will start their home season by hosting subcontinent teams Pakistan and Bangladesh in a tri-series. It will take place right before the T20I World Cup. Following that, they are slated to face India.
Upon their return, they are scheduled to face England and Sri Lanka. They will compete in a two-match Test series against the Three Lions in February.
Sri Lanka, on the other hand, will partake in a full-fledged tour involving two Tests, three ODIs and three T20Is in March 2023.
