Attempts to reschedule last year and earlier this year were undone by further Covid travel restrictions, but the two antipodean old foes are now finally set to do battle in what has the makings of being a superb series.
Aussie head coach Andrew McDonald has named what amounts to a full-strength side for the series as the Baggy Greens take their preparations for next year’s ODI World Cup in India up a notch. Just Test captain Pat Cummins rests, while Travis Head is on paternity leave.
The Black Caps meanwhile come into the series in fine form after a 2-1 win in the West Indies last month – their first in the Caribbean in their history.

How to watch Australia vs New Zealand ODI cricket from outside your country
Below we’ve got you covered with your official Australia vs New Zealand broadcasting options for the UK, South Africa, India, New Zealand and the US, but if you’re currently outside your country of residence and trying to stream the cricket via your local broadcaster, you’ll soon discover that you can’t, as it’s location restricted. But there is a way to tune in regardless.
By downloading and installing a VPN, you can effectively trick your computer into thinking that it’s back at home. That way you can enjoy your home coverage without having to find an illegal stream – assuming you comply with the broadcaster’s fine print, of course, specifically its terms and conditions.

Can I watch an Australia vs New Zealand live stream in the US?
Dedicated streaming service Willow TV is usually where cricket fans can watch Cricket action in the States, but Willow nor any other broadcaster in the region appears to be showing this ODI series live.
The only alternative is to use one of the best VPN service providers to tap into coverage from another nation, as described above.
The software is generally ideal for this as it allows you to change your IP address and appear to be in a completely different location – and all through a safe, encrypted connection. But do bear in mind that most paid streaming services do require a credit card based in the country the service is from.
