Indian Cricket Team Depart for New Zealand for Full Series

After beating Australia 2-1 in a three-match ODI series at home, the Indian cricket team have departed for New Zealand for what will be a full tour.

India's tour of New Zealand will see them play five T20Is, three ODIs and two Tests. The first T20I is on Friday (January 24).

India may have form and momentum on their side after the series win against Australia but there are a few injury concerns ahead of the series.

Shikhar Dhawan has been ruled out of the T20I series with a shoulder injury and Ishant Sharma's participation in the Test series is also doubtful.

Hardik Pandya's availability for the series is also unclear, with the all-rounder beginning his recovery in the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru.
