Boxing day and there is no international cricket in New Zealand. How very sad.
In fact there is not any international cricket scheduled in New Zealand until February. The better part of summer will pass with no international cricket. The bold claim by New Zealand Cricket of this being a busy summer has a gaping hole in it, namely the month and a half gap between the Pakistan series and the Bangladesh series. When we did last have a summer that included over a month of no international cricket? Ever in the modern era?
