Now, they are playing the tournament against the back to back runners up in the ICC Cricket World Cup New Zealand. At first, they played the T20I series against the Black Caps.
But, Kane Williamson’s New Zealand faced the whitewash in the T20I cricket. Later, the three matches ODI series took place.

They want to use their full strength against New Zealand in Test cricket. Virat Kohli is looking towards the Test series!
The Test series between New Zealand and India consists of two matches. The first match will take place at the Basin Reserve, Wellington. From the 21st February 2020, the long format cricket will start officially. But before that, Kohli’s India will play a three days warm-up match against New Zealand XI at the Seddon Park, Hamilton.
Before visiting New Zealand, India played a three matches ODI series against Australia at their home venue. They beat Australia by a 2 – 1 game. And earlier, New Zealand visited Australia for a Test series. The history of the series was not good. Australia whitewashed New Zealand there. So, Kane Williamson might want to forget the memory and needs to write a new one.
