Blackcaps back to Saxton


The Blackcaps are back.

Nelson’s Saxton Oval will again play host to the New Zealand cricket team this summer, with two One Day Internationals confirmed for the venue this afternoon.

The games – both against Sri Lanka – will be played on December 31 this year and January 2, 2016.

It’s the third summer in a row that Nelson will have played host to the Blackcaps, with three Cricket World Cup games also being played here earlier this year.
