Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma welcomed with loud cheers in Auckland

After a groundbreaking tour of Australia, where India defeated the hosts in both the Tests and the bilateral ODI series for the first time in their history, the Virat Kohli-led outfit has embarked on a tour of New Zealand.

India, ranked second in the ICC ODI rankings, will take on the third-placed Black Caps in five one-dayers before playing three T20s.

The first of the five ODIs will be played in Napier on 23 January.

The visiting squad has landed in the land of the kiwis and were greeted with a loud cheer by eager Indian supporters as they touched down in Auckland.

However, the loudest reception was reserved for Team India skipper Kohli and his wife Anushka Sharma.

India were drubbed 4-0 by the Kiwis in the 2013-14 season, the last time they played them in New Zealand.

However, buoyed by their historic wins Down Under, India will look for a similar outcome against Australia’s trans-Tasman rivals.

The Napier ODI will be followed by two consecutive matches in Mount Maunganui, while Hamilton and Wellington will host the final two matches of the series.

Wellington, Auckland and Hamilton are scheduled to host the three T20 respectively.
