India have already landed in New Zealand for a two-match Test series and a five-match One-Day International (ODI) series. Mahendra Singh Dhoni leads a young side and this tour would be crucial to their build-up to the ICC World Cup 2015.

 

New Zealand are a good side and have a host of youngsters ready to take on the world by storm. India too have a younger set and this tour is their chance to get back into the winning groove after a disappointing tour to South Africa.

 

India begin their campaign on January 19, 2014 with the first ODI at Napier. The following ODIs would be played at Hamilton, Auckland, Hamilton again and Wellington. The first Test will commence on February 6 at Auckland, with the second starting on February 14 at Wellington.
