Tour delay means White Ferns, Black Caps combine for three extra matches in Hamilton, Napier and Auckland.

New Zealand Cricket has reshuffled the schedules for the Bangladesh (men) and Australia (women) tours in March, including a bonus for fans of Twenty20 double-headers.
Bangladeshs tour will now be delayed a week, NZC confirmed in a statement, due to ongoing challenges in the current Covid-19 environment and the need to allow visiting sides adequate preparation for international commitments.
It is Bangladeshs first visit to New Zealand since their 2019 tour was cut short following the mosque attacks, which players narrowly avoided the day before the scheduled third test at Christchurchs Hagley Oval.
Members of Pakistan’s cricket team met with some of the families of Christchurch mosque attack victims on Saturday.
The tour opener will now be a one-day international at Dunedins University Oval on Saturday, March 20, after Bangladesh complete a five-day training camp in Queenstown.

The same venues will host the six mens matches as previously advertised, but on different dates.
It also means three more Twenty20 double-headers, with the White Ferns facing Australia and the Black Caps playing Bangladesh at Hamilton, Napier and Auckland.
