India have a really crammed season moving forward. With tours of England, Australia and New Zealand slated next, the team will barely have time to catch its breath. The schedule of the Indian limited overs tour to New Zealand beginning next year has been announced.

Team India will play 5 ODIs and 3 T20Is which lie in between of the tours of Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

However, due to some legal binding, Auckland could not host as many matches as the officials liked.

“NZC would’ve liked to have scheduled more India matches at Eden Park in Auckland but was unable to do so because of restrictions at the venue,” the board’s chief operating officer Anthony Crummy was told reporters.

It has been a long time since Team India has been seen in action in New Zealand and the new venue and livelier pitches will guarantee a lot more action.

I, a failed cricketer say: write picturesque, write insightful; otherwise don’t write. My writings are a source of self pleasure. Enjoy a fiercely fought test session much more than a slam bang T20. I write anything, as per whim- news piece, feature, opinion, editorial, preview, analysis etc. Hope to write a book one day!
