[Image: prv_e31ab_1467094357.jpg]
New Zealand lost the Test series but won the T20I series when they toured India last in 2012.

The historic Green Park stadium in Kanpur will host the first Test between India and New Zealand from September 22, beginning a 13-Test 2016-17 home season of cricket for India which also includes visits by England, Australia and Bangladesh. New Zealand's three-match series will then move to new-Test venue Indore for the second game before rounding off the Test series at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

The Test series will be followed by five One-Day Internationals (ODI) at Dharamsala, New Delhi, Mohali, Ranchi and Visakhapatnam, a BCCI release confirmed. The tour will culminate on October 29.

India's home season will include 13 Tests, eight ODIs and three Twenty20 Internationals. The thirteen Tests in the season also equals the record for the highest number of home Tests in a season; the previous time these many games were held was in 1979-80, also in India.

New Zealand last visited India in 2012, when they lost the Test series 0-2 but won the two-match T20I series 1-0.

Tour Schedule:

1st Test: Green Park Stadium, Kanpur - September 22-26

2nd Test: Holkar Stadium, Indore - September 30 - October 4

3rd Test: Eden Gardens, Kolkata - October 8-12
