Cook: will lead his team in New Zealand

England are about to combat New Zealand in a three-match Test series - and you can see ALL the action live and uninterrupted on Sky Sports.

The contest begins at 8pm on Tuesday on Sky Sports 1 HD and you won't miss a ball of the first Test in Dunedin (Mar 5-9) the second in Wellington (Mar 14-8) or the third in Auckland (Mar 22-26) if you stay glued to Sky Sports and Sky Sports HD.

England will head into the games in good form after winning a Test series in India at the back end of last year for the first time since 1984/85.

Alastair Cook's charges will also be boosted by the knowledge that they have only lost one Test series in New Zealand, in 1983/84, and won on their previous trip there, in 2007/08.

The contests will be a chance for England to fine tune their preparations ahead of a huge year of cricket which includes a home series with New Zealand and back-to-back Ashes duels with old enemy Australia, all of which you will be able to see on Sky Sports.

As well as the gripping on-field action, we will also bring you key analysis from the likes of Sir Ian Botham and Mike Atherton, while you can also stay bang up to date with all the goings on in New Zealand by watching Sky Sports News HD or logging onto skysports.com.
