A day after beating Australia in Bengaluru on Sunday to clinch the three-match ODI series 2-1, Team India head to New Zealand for a full tour, comprising five T20Is, three ODIs and two Tests.
The series win against a strong Australia, and the performance in New Zealand last year will give India a lot of confidence ahead of a new tour.
In 2019, Kohli & Co. had defeated the hosts 4-1 in the ODI’s. However, the Black Caps fought back in the T20I series and beat the Men in Blue 2-1.
