The Indian women’s cricket team will also be touring New Zealand along with the men’s team and they will feature in double-headers against the New Zealand men’s and women’s sides in late January next year.

The men’s team will take on New Zealand in five ODIs and three T20s while the women’s team will be playing three ODIs and three T20 Internationals.

The games will be played over consecutive days at Napier, Mt Maunganui and Hamilton, and the T20s on the same days at Wellington, Auckland and Hamilton.

NZC chief operating officer Anthony Crummy said the schedule was rich in content and it would bring some of the world’s best players to New Zealand, and ensured a healthy geographical spread – with international fixtures to be played from Cobham Oval in the north, to the University of Otago Oval in the south.

“We think it’s another strong schedule in which we’ve continued the philosophy of taking international cricket to some of our most popular boutique grounds over the school holiday period,” said Crummy.

“It’s exciting to have the India men’s and women’s team here. The men are currently ranked No.2 in ODIs and T20s – and the women arrive as ICC Cricket World Cup finalists.

“It’s also healthy to be driving greater exposure and appeal in the women’s game. All six of the White Ferns’ fixtures will be televised live for the first time in New Zealand history.”
