Next on the agenda is a gripping three-match Test series against New Zealand. This series begins on October 16 in Bengaluru, with subsequent Tests in Pune and Mumbai.

Chennai, Kolkata, Rajkot, Pune, and Mumbai will host the five T20Is, while Nagpur, Cuttack, and Ahmedabad will host the ODI series as the tour ends on February 12.
