Stuff – Super Over decides Cricket World Cup final and gives Black Caps an agonising defeat against England.
- Under the International Cricket Council’s Future Tours Programme, the Black Caps and England aren’t scheduled to meet in a one-day international series during the next four years.
- The Black Caps and England are set to meet in tests and Twenty20 internationals over the next four years, with series in both formats scheduled for October and November in New Zealand, and a return test series scheduled for June 2022.
- The five-match T20 series later this year is one of two the Black Caps will host next summer – the other against India – and it comes as teams turn their focus in white-ball cricket to the T20 World Cup to be played in Australia at the end of next year.
- From next month, when they tour Sri Lanka for tests and T20s, to the end of July next year, the Black Caps are set to play 12 ODIs and 22 T20s, with nine and 18 to follow in the 12 months after that, ahead of the 2021 T20 World Cup in India.
- The Black Caps are then set to have 12 matches in each format in 2021-22, with ODIs coming to the fore again in 2022-23 ahead of the next 50-over World Cup in India, where 15 are scheduled and nothing is on the cards in the game’s shortest format.
