The ODI series for Indian women against women from New Zealand has been postponed

The Indian women’s cricket team was scheduled to play five ODIs and T20Is, starting Feb. 9, in three places, but New Zealand Cricket moved all games to the John Davies Oval in Queenstown. The ODI series of the Indian women’s cricket team against New Zealand will now start on February 12, a day later than originally planned, as the host committee announced revised matches on Friday to give the two sides more time between matches.
