Dates announced for England Men's tour of New Zealand

Press release   •   Jun 07, 2019 00:15 BST

The Bay Oval in Mt Maunganui

England will face New Zealand in two Tests and five IT20s before Christmas as part of a six-week tour.

The shorter format takes centre stage first up, with the five IT20s taking place in the space of ten days across Christchurch, Wellington, Nelson, Napier and Auckland, starting on 1 November.

The red-ball part of the tour takes place solely on New Zealand’s North Island, with two warm-up matches in Whangarei prior to two Tests in Mt Maunganui (21-25 November) and Hamilton (29 November-3 December).

Tickets will go on sale for these matches in due course, with fans planning to attend asked to sign up to a waiting list in the meantime. Those on the waiting list will be given priority access to purchase tickets when they go on sale.
