India to play 2 tests, 5 ODIs in New Zealand

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) India will play two tests and five limited-overs internationals on its cricket tour to New Zealand in January and February, though venues for those matches have yet to be decided.

The framework for the tour schedule was agreed during weekend talks between New Zealand Cricket and the Board of Control for Cricket in India. The tour will now directly follow New Zealand's home series against the West Indies in December and January.

India and New Zealand will meet in ODIs on Jan. 19, 22, 25, 28 and 31. The tourists will then play a two-day warmup match before test matches from Feb. 6-10 and Feb. 14-18.
