India vs New Zealand live stream: how to watch 1st Test cricket online from anywhere

Asia's Tech News Daily

Test cricket’s two best teams play out a repeat of June’s WTC showpiece in a welcome return to red-ball action for the tourists, after the pain of another World Cup final defeat. Read on as we explain how to watch an India vs New Zealand live stream and catch all the cricket action online no matter where you are in the world.

India vs New Zealand live stream

Date: November 25 – November 29

Time: 9.30am IST / 5pm NZDT / 4am GMT

Venue: Green Park Stadium, Kanpur, India

Live stream: Disney Plus Hotstar (IN) | Sky Sport (NZ) | Sky Sports (UK) | Kayo Sports FREE trial (AU) | Sling TV / Willow TV / ESPN Plus (US)

New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson sat out the three-match T20 series to prepare for the Test double-header, and he’s got a job on his hands rallying the troops after a complete whitewash. The change of pace will give the WTC champions a chance to compose themselves after a torturous two weeks, but the Men in Blue hold all of the aces.

New T20 captain Rohit Sharma has got India back in their groove after a difficult period of their own, and the team will be doubly motivated by the prospect of retribution after losing the WTC final five months ago.

However, regular Test skipper Virat Kohli is being rested – Ajinkya Rahane taking the reins once more after his heroics in Australia earlier this year – and considering the topsy-turvy, often ill-tempered nature of India’s recent tour of England, the absence of the team’s leader offers New Zealand more than a glimmer of hope.

Follow our guide for all the details you need to find a reliable 2021 India vs New Zealand Test live stream and watch every match online from anywhere.
