New Zealand announce 2016-17 schedule

New Zealand have announced a tight schedule for the next two summers which includes 12 Test matches and a total of 98 days of international cricket. 

Under the NZC schedule announced, New Zealand in 2016-17 will host Pakistan (two Tests), Bangladesh (three ODIs, three T20s, two Tests), Australia (three ODIs) and South Africa (one T20, five ODIs, three Tests).

In 2017-18, they will host the West Indies (three Tests, five ODIs, one T20), Pakistan (three T20s, five ODIs), Australia (three ODIs) and England (one T20, five ODIs, two Tests).

NZC chief executive David White stated,



The last couple of years has seen a significant rise in interest in cricket and I think the schedule we've locked in will help that interest continue to grow.



New Zealand also unveiled plans to host a day-night Test against England. It would take place at Auckland’s Eden Park in 2018 but is still pending agreement and approval.

"While we can't confirm it yet, it's something we're extremely interested in and working towards," NZC chief executive David White said.
