New Zealand vs India 2020

24 Jan 2020 - 29 Feb 2020

After their last encounter in the ICC ODI World Cup, New Zealand and India would be facing each other this winter as India will set out to tour New Zealand in January 2020.


The tour which is going to be a long one, will cover all three formats of the game: T20, One day Internationals as well as Tests. In fact the two-match Test series which will be played in this tour will be a part of the ongoing World Test Championship.


The tour will begin with a five-match T20 series between India and New Zealand which will begin on January 24th, 2020 and continue till February 2nd, 2020. After the T20 series we will see a brief two day gap, before the NZ vs IND 2020 action resumes with the ODI series.


India v New Zealand - ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 Semi-Final


The three-match ODI series will commence with the first ODI in Hamilton on February 5th. The opener will be followed by the ODI in Auckland on February 8th. The final match of the tour will be played in Mount Maunganui on February 11th.

Following the ODI series, India and New Zealand will first play a three-day practice match before playing the two-match test series which would be a part of the ongoing World Test Championship. The two Test matches would be played on February 21st and February 29th at Wellington and Christchurch respectively.


Recent Encounters : Ind vs Aus


The last series which India played against New Zealand was around the same time of the year in 2019. India toured New Zealand in January-February 2019 for a five-match ODI series followed by a three-match T20I series.


India cricket team comfortably won the ODI series 4-1 but had to face loss a 2-1 loss in the T20 series to New Zealand.


The last New Zealand vs India encounter was at the 2019 ICC ODI World Cup semi-finals. And that was one of the most crucial matches ever played between the two countries.


Although India comfortably won the group stage match against New Zealand, it was the Kiwis who had the last laugh. New Zealand defeated India at the World Cup semi-finals by 18 runs to reach the finals.


Pre and Post Series Scenarios


Before coming to New Zealand, India would be playing Australia for a three-ODI home series. While New Zealand cricket team would be coming into the T20 series against India from a nice three-week gap after their Test series against Australia.


This is going to be a very long stay for India in New Zealand. However, it might come extremely handy for the Indian players. It will be a healthy practice for the Indian team as the T20 World Cup will be played in Australia under very similar conditions.


After their long tour in New Zealand, the Indian cricketers will head back home for their series against South Africa. The Kiwis on the other hand will travel west to Australia for another ODI series against their neighbours.
