Cricket: Black Caps face India at Eden Park for T20

From Checkpoint, 6:16 pm on 24 January 2020

The Black Caps cricketers can begin putting a tough trip to Australia behind them in Auckland on Friday night.

After a much-needed break in the wake of their thumping 3-0 test series loss across the Tasman - New Zealand face India at Eden Park in the first of five T20 matches.

The game begins India's six-week stay on Kiwi shores - and is followed at the same venue tomorrow by the first of three one-day matches between the White Ferns and South African women's teams.

Cricket reporter Clay Wilson is covering the match and joins Lisa with his analysis.
