Yes, it’s that time of year again when we speculate about where in the order the New Zealand batting collapse will take place and there is a busy schedule this summer:

West Indies tour in December,
Pakistan tour in January,
There is a Twenty20 tri-series with Australia and England in February,
England tour in March.

All BlackCaps fixtures and fittings.

I'm just hoping at that point British media will stop prefacing Ben Stokes with "New Zealand born cricket player..." because we already have Jesse Ryder to do the drunken punch-ups.

I have been looking forward to being in New Zealand for an England cricket tour for a very long time.

It is disappointing though that McLean Park in Napier still hasn't sorted its drainage out so the ODI that was going to be there has been moved.

I thought they "fixed" McLean park for the 2015 world cup but it looks like you are right, will be out of action for a while as they need to have a proper look.

Yeah before then, this month NZ play a few ODIs and T20s in India, no tests though probably as well given the stuffing the Aussies and England have suffered recent tours there.
Speaking of the latter two, the Ashes kick off next month too.

After revelations today about the India series may I be the first to say that if any New Zealand player or staff member is implicated in match fixing or similar Spanish business they should never play in a league organised by or be involved with NZ Cricket again. Similarly if someone knew something and didn't speak out. The last thing we need is a repeat of the last cheating saga...
