T20 Cricket Summer 2020 – 2021

Whether played in the backyard, or at the beach, on TV or the radio, cricket is the quintessential ingredient for a good old-fashioned Kiwi summer. Support for the national side – the New Zealand BLACKCAPS – remains strong, even in the face of inconsistent form.

One-day matches are the most popular version of the game, but test matches are still popular with fans who insist it is the pure version of the game. As with many other cricketing nations, the even shorter Twenty20 game is the real crowd-puller and so we put together a list of the T20 matches that you can catch in Auckland at Eden Park, New Zealand’s National stadium.
