India Tour of New Zealand Complete Schedule with Squad List for All Formats

India Tour of New Zealand Complete Schedule with Squad List for All Formats

After winning a challenging series against Australia at home India will tour New Zealand for their first away assignment of the year. The tour of New Zealand is always considered as a challenge, it will be very vital for the preparation of T-20 world cup as India will play 5 T-20 matches in the series. India will kick of their campaign on 24th of January with the T-20 encounter and the tour will play last match of the tour on February 29 when they will take on New Zealand in Test match. Team India got a big jolt right before the tour as Shikhar Dhawan injured his shoulder in the last ODI against Australian. He sustained the injury early in the Australian Inning and did not come out to bat.

All eyes will be on Hardik Pandya, who is yet to prove the fitness. The selectors have put the announcement of Indian ODI and Test Squad on hold  as they are waiting for the fitness result of Hardik Pandya. So, far team India is banking upon all rounder Shivam Dube, he can play a vital role in India’s tour of New Zealand. Dube is yet to be tested as an all rounder, he has done fairly well in the limited opportunity he got. Eyes will also be on Prithvi Shaw who is currently in New Zealand with A team of India. He has just scored a blistering 150 run knock against New Zealand A, if Dhawan fails to make to the squad he will be the one for the reckoning.

Hardik Pandya could not make to the ODI Squad and Prithvi Shaw gets a call for ODI Squad.
