The Indian cricket Team will tour New Zealand in January 2019 to play a limited overs series comprising of five ODIs and three Twenty20 Internationals.
The tour will begin on 23 January 2019. The ODI series is expected to be a rather tough contest as India is ranked second and New Zealand is ranked third in the ICC ODI Team Rankings.
In the T20Is, India are ranked second while the Kiwis are ranked fifth in the ICC T20I Team rankings.
New Zealand have a winning percentage of 75 against India in T20Is. India have won only 2 of the 8 T20Is, that too, both at home. In the ODIs, India have won 51 out of 101 matches played between the two sides. In New Zealand, the Kiwis have won 21 matches out of 34.
The first ODI will be played on 23 January 2019 at McLean Park in Napier. The second and third ODIs will be played at the Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui on 26 and 28 January 2019 respectively. These two sides have never faced each other at the Bay Oval.
The Seddon Park in Hamilton will host the 4th ODI on 31 January 2019. The final match of the ODI series will take place in the Westpac Stadium in Wellington on 3 February 2019.
Three days after the ODI series, the first T20I will also be played in Wellington. On 8 February, the Eden Park will host the second T20I. The teams will face off again in Hamilton, this time for the final match of the tour on 10 February to play the third T20I.
