The India tour of New Zealand in 2022 will begin next week. The Indian team is taking home some fresh wounds from the loss at the hands of England. And it was not just a victory for England; it was a comprehensive victory by a margin of 10 wickets. With that being said, the Indian team will be keen to make a comeback in the India tour of New Zealand. The last time India toured New Zealand was in 2020. India won the T20I series 5-0 and lost the ODI series 3-0. Here is a look at the schedule:

Preview of the Indian team before India’s tour of New Zealand:
The Indian team is coming after a thumping loss at the hands of England in the ICC T20 World Cup. The team did not have an exceptional tournament as they suffered two losses in the 6 games that they played. But the loss against England came as a harsh reality check. With that being said, the boys did play good cricket too. Suryakumar and Virat Kohli were the stars of the Indian team. Arshdeep Singh was mighty impressive too.
Preview of the New Zealand Team:
The New Zealand team is in the same boat as the Indian team. They also lost their semi-final game by a margin of 10 wickets at the hands of Pakistan. But the Kiwis have found multiple strong characters around whom they can now build a team. Glenn Phillips was good and so was Daryll Mitchell. Devon Conway and Finn Allen have their moments too.
