New Zealand has had a solid season of cricket, falling agonisingly short of a first World Cup win and working their way into the number two spot in the World Test Rankings courtesy of a consistent run of form.
With a big summer of cricket coming up it will be difficult to stay on top of all the action, but using the information provided in this guide you won’t have to miss a minute when watching live at home on TV or streaming the matches to a mobile device.
New Zealand v Australia ODI Series TV Preview
The Black Caps will take on their biggest cricket rivals the Baggy Green Caps in six ODI matches split between stadiums in New Zealand and Australia. The first three games will take place in Sydney and Hobart before the teams cross the Tasman Sea to conclude the series in Dunedin, Auckland and Christchurch. The games will bring a close to the international cricket season for the two southern hemisphere sides, and players will be keen to lay down a marker and stake a claim for a place in their respective T20 World Cup squads.
New Zealand are currently ranked third in the ODI rankings, with Australia fifth. Some of the best white ball games of cricket ever witnessed have taken place between these two sides, and this one will be no different. Australia come into the series as slight favourites after a strong summer on home turf that included a three test white wash over New Zealand. But Kane Williams side will be looking to recapture the form that took them to within a ball of winning the World Cup in 2019, and get some much needed bragging rights over the Aussies.
** ICC announce AU vs NZ ODIs and T20Is postponed**
