England will play a cricket test match in Dunedin next summer, for the first time since 1966 - while Eden Park will host its first test since 2006.

The tour of New Zealand by the current world number one test side includes three Twenty20 matches and three one day internationals, as well as the three tests.

The England tour begins on February the 9th and concludes on March the 26th with the tests starting at Dunedin's University Oval on March the 6th. The other two fixtures are at the Basin Reserve in Wellington and at Eden Park.

Hamilton and Auckland get a Twenty20 and a one-dayer each, with Wellington hosting the third T20 and Napier the other ODI.

Christchurch misses out on any matches due to the lack of a suitable international cricket venue.
