The Cricket team of England will begin its New Zealand tour from 27 October 2019 and will play 2 unofficial T20 matches, one 2-day match, one 3-day match, 5 matches in the official T20I series and 2 matches in the Test series. However, the Test series which has been included in the New Zealand vs England Schedule 2019 will not be a part of the 2019-21 ICC World Test Championship.
The tour matches will begin from 27 October 2019, with the New Zealand XI squad taking on the visitors at Bert Sutcliffe Oval at Lincoln. The second match of the same format will be played on 29 October 2019 at the same ground. Both the matches are scheduled to begin at 1300 Hrs (Local) and will be unofficial T20 matches. The England in New Zealand schedule also consists of two more unofficial matches, which will be played between New Zealand XI and the English cricket team.
The 2-day match will be played on 12-13 November 2019 at Cobham Oval in Whangarei. The same ground will be hosting the 3 -day match as well, which has been scheduled for 15-17 November 2019. This NZ vs ENG schedule has so many unofficial tour matches to give the English team a proper rehabilitation time, as they will be playing in an opposite location from their home — in the extreme South and 12 hours difference in the Time Zone.
The official ICC matches of the series will be played in two sections, with the T20I series preceding the Test series. The first match will be played at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch on 1 November 2019, and the second one is scheduled to be played in Wellington on 3 November 2019 at the Westpac Stadium. The Saxton Oval at Nelson will be hosting the third T20I match of the series whereas the McLean Park in Napier will be attracting crowds for the fourth match. The final match of the series will be played in Auckland at Eden Park No. 1 before the teams switch to the Red Ball matches.

The English team will then be joined by their Test Captain Joe Root and will begin the test series on 21 November 2019 at the Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui. The Bay Oval will then become the ninth venue in New Zealand to host Test matches. The final match of the New Zealand vs England tour, the second Test will be held from 29 November 2019 to 3 December 2019 after which the English team will conclude its tour.
