New Zealand Cricket Schedule Announcement

9 April 2024

Hagley Oval, the Cello Basin Reserve, and Seddon Park will host the BLACKCAPS’ three ICC World Championship Tests against England at the end of this year.

Following what has been described as an extremely competitive venue allocation process, the Tests have been scheduled to be played in Christchurch from November 28-December 2, in Wellington from December 6-10, and in Hamilton from December 14-18.

Strong demand for details from domestic and international fans prompted New Zealand Cricket to expedite decisions over the England Tests, with the remainder of the 2024-25 Home International Schedule to be announced later in the year.

The Australia and Sri Lanka women’s teams, and the Sri Lanka and Pakistan men’s teams will also be touring next summer.

Interest in the England Test series follows sell-out crowds on seven of the eight days of the two Tests played against Australia earlier this year, as well as massive TVNZ audiences.
