New Zealand on Tuesday announced a blockbuster home season in 2022-23 for their men and women’s teams. The Black Caps will begin their home season with a tri-series against Pakistan and Bangladesh to prepare for the T20 World Cup, which will be held in Australia in October-November.
New Zealand will host Rohit Sharma’s India in 3 T20Is and as many ODIs with the series starting 4 days after the T20 World Cup final, scheduled for November 14. Notably, New Zealand had flown down to India days after last year’s T20 Cup to play a white-ball series and Tests.
The 3 T20Is will be played in Wellington, Tauranga and Napier from November 18 and three ODIs at Auckland, Hamilton, and Christchurch.from November 25 to 30.
Meanwhile, New Zealand will also host England in a 2-Test series, which includes a pink-ball Test at home in February 2023. Notably, the reigning world Test champions will eye revenge as they were blanked 3-0 by a Ben Stokes-led England team, which completed the victory in the final Test in Headingley on Monday, June 27.
Before hosting England in Tests at home, the BLACKCAPS will depart for the sub-continent for a tour of Pakistan and a shortform series in India.
