Summer afternoons filled with thrilling international sports – it must be cricket.

Support our national teams this season, with 38 days of cricket across nine venues from Dunedin to Auckland and touring international teams from Sri Lanka, India and Bangladesh providing sub-continental flavour. 

The season’s showpiece will be the T20 double-header combined Indian series, where the Blackcaps and White Ferns battle it out against the Indian men and women in January and February.

Join the crowds for fun and frivolity, sunshine and summer sports around the country. Matches take place around New Zealand – from the iconic Boxing Day Test in Christchurch, one day games at Mount Maunganui’s Bay Oval and the double-header matches in Auckland, Hamilton and Wellington.
