The Black Caps will welcome India and England to New Zealand shores next summer as part of a bumper home schedule that stretches from October until April.

Mitchell Santner dives to stop the ball hit by Rohit Sharma during the T20 World Cup match between New Zealand and India.

The home season will begin in early October when the Black Caps host Pakistan and Bangladesh in a Christchurch-based T20 tri-series as part of final preparations for the T20 World Cup in Australia later that same month.

Upon completion of that tournament in November, India will head across the ditch for three T20s and three ODIs.

The Black Caps will then depart for the delayed tour of Pakistan in December and January, as well as a short-form series in India, before returning home to play England in two Tests in February.

This series will include the first day-night Test in New Zealand since the Black Caps defeated the same opposition at Eden Park in 2018.

Sri Lanka round off the men's schedule with a full tour comprising two Tests, three ODIs and three T20s in March and April.

Meanwhile, the White Ferns will host Bangladesh for three ODIs and three T20s in December before heading to South Africa to contest the T20 World Cup in January.
