Starting in November fans can see Canterbury, New Zealand-A and the BLACKCAPS take on international teams from West Indies, Pakistan, Australia and Bangladesh.
The first top-billing match at Hagley Oval will see the BLACKCAPS take on Pakistan in a test match on Sunday 3 January.
A top-billing T20 between the BLACKCAPS and the West Indies at Eden Park on Friday, 27 November will launch the packed home international cricket schedule for the New Zealand 2020-21 summer.
The BLACKCAPS are currently in fourth place on the inaugural Test Match Championship ladder and a strong performance in each series will greatly enhance their chances of qualifying for the final, scheduled for next June.
The first Test against Pakistan at Bay Oval will be the eighth Boxing Day Test in New Zealand and the first since the BLACKCAPS beat Sri Lanka at Hagley Oval in 2018. Wellington (five Tests) and Christchurch have hosted the others.
The WHITE FERNS can also look forward to an exciting summer of international cricket, with the England women’s side confirmed to visit in February and March, and discussions ongoing regarding a visit from the Australia women.
While the Government has so far granted approval for the first two incoming teams, New Zealand Cricket chief executive David White was confident the other inbound tours would receive the green light.
