The 2022–23 home season for New Zealand’s men’s and women’s teams will be a major event, the country declared on Tuesday. A tri-series against Pakistan and Bangladesh will kick off the Black Caps’ home season and they will continue the preparation as they face India to get ready for the T20 World Cup, which will take place in Australia in October-November. 

The series will begin 4 days after the T20 World Cup final, which is set for November 14, and will consist of three T20 Internationals and as many ODIs against Rohit Sharma’s India. Notably, New Zealand had travelled to India days after the T20 Cup of the previous year to play a white-ball series and several Test matches.

An additional 2-Test series, which will feature a pink-ball Test at home in February 2023, will be played between New Zealand and England. Notably, the current global Test champions will seek retribution after being blanked 3-0 by a Ben Stokes-led England squad that won the last Test on Monday, June 27 in Headingley. 

The BLACKCAPS will go for the subcontinent for a tour of Pakistan and a series in India before hosting England in tests at home. 

Along with hosting Sri Lanka in March for two tests, three one-day internationals, and three Twenty20 internationals, New Zealand will also welcome Bangladesh for a white-ball series in December 2022.
