Star Sports will broadcast the New Zealand India-series, starting tomorrow (Friday) in Auckland. The Indian cricket team’s touring New Zealand will involve five T20 Internationals, three One Day Internationals and two Test matches between January 24 and March 4th March 2020 for a bilateral series consisting of five T20Is, three ODIs and two Tests.
India’s World Cup dreams were ended agonisingly at the hands of the Kiwis in the semi-final. With the loss still hurting, there could be no better revenge for Virat Kohli’s men than beating the Black Caps in their own backyard.
The Indian team, fresh off their victory against Australia, will miss in-form opener Shikhar Dhawan due to injury. But his replacement Prithvi Shaw brings in a lot of hope for himself and the team.
New Zealand haven’t been in the best of form lately having been whitewashed by Australia in their three-match Test series. Against India, their task will be tougher as they will be without the services of stars like Trent Boult, Lockie Ferguson, Matt Henry and Jimmy Neesham who are out with injuries.
The recent win against Australia has given new energy to the Indian cricket team to get them ready to take on a tough and challenging New Zealand on their home turf. Cricket fans of both countries are eagerly waiting to witness high octane cricketing drama on the field.
