Heavy rain in Wellington forced the cancellation of the opening T20I match between New Zealand and India.
The washout means the teams next meet in the second scheduled T20I in Mount Maunganui on Sunday with the third on 22 November in Napier.
The Blacks Caps then host India for three ODIs in Auckland, Hamilton and Christchurch.
Both sides are looking to bounce back after being knocked out of last week’s semi-finals of the T20 World Cup.
India have rested stars Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli for the New Zealand tour while head coach Rahul Dravid also sits out, with VVS Laxman, head of India’s National Cricket Academy, in charge.
Suryakumar Yadav, India’s new batting sensation, and pace bowler Umran Malik are included in the India squad.
All-rounder Hardik Pandya captains the T20I side with Shikhar Dhawan taking over as skipper for the ODIs.
