    India to play 3 tests in New Zealand

    After India cancelled the tour of Pakistan, the situation was such that the players would have had no international cricket between Dec 24 and Mar 3 and only some of them would have featured in the Ranji Trophy semi-finals and final. The BCCI was hit significantly by the cancellation of the tour in terms of revenues from TV and hence started talks with New Zealand's cricket board to include an extra test in that tour.

    It is likely that the original request from the BCCI was for making it a 2-test 7-ODI series. I guess Cricket NZ shot down the idea. In any case, credit to both parties for the revised schedule.

    The original schedule comprised of 1 T20 game, a warm-up game, 2 tests and 5 ODIs. Under the new schedule, India will play 2 T20 games, 3 tests and 5 ODIs, which means the warm-up game has been scrapped. I'm not too concerned about the absence of a warmup game since the bulk of the Indian team would have featured in the ODIs, the only exceptions being Dravid, Laxman & perhaps Mishra.
