The tour will begin from November 17 and the final day of the 2nd Test will be on December 07.
The two Tests in the series will be a part of the ICC World Test Championship 2021-23 Cycle.
Team India whitewashed New Zealand in the three-match T20I series as they beat the Kiwis in all three games. The Rohit Sharma-Rahul Dravid era began with the T20I series against New Zealand as the Men in Blue dominated the Blackcaps for the majority of the series.
Now, the first Test is all set to begin from November 25 and some senior players have been rested for the series. Rohit Sharma and Rishabh Pant will be missing out while KL Rahul has been ruled out of the Test series due to an injury.
Ajinkya Rahane will lead the Indian Cricket Team in the first Test while Virat Kohli, the regular Indian Test captain will join the team from the second Test at Mumbai.
