New Zealand has had a solid 2019 calendar year, falling agonisingly short of an inaugural World Cup trophy 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 India T20, ODI and Test Series TV Preview
The Black Caps have earned themselves the world number two Test ranking thanks to a streak which has now lasted almost three years during which they have won eight out of their Test series. For the most part these series’ have been against lower ranked sides and played in New Zealand, but they proved they are capable of matching it with the best with an impressive 1-0 series win over England played over November and December. Now, they have an even tougher assignment as they head to Australia for a three-Test series, where they’ll be attempting to claim a series for the first time since 1986, and then off to India for a series of T20’s and ODI’s, followed by two Tests.
New Zealand’s summer continues with an extended visit from India, against whom they’ll play five T20I’s, three ODI’s and a couple of Tests through January, February and March. India, fresh off a series victory over Australia, is probably the best team in the world across the three formats, and with the likes of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma heading the batting line-up they will present a massive challenge for the Kiwis. The India tour of New Zealand will round out what is an important summer for a Black Caps’ side which typically plays most of its series against lower-ranked teams as they attempt to prove they belong among the best teams in the world.
