In fact, India skipper Virat Kohli had complained about the schedule after the team headed to New Zealand within a couple of days of their ODI series against Australia at the start of the year.

Addressing the media ahead of the opening T20I at Eden Park, Kohli said that it was coming to a scenario where players were landing at the stadium from one series to the other.

"It's getting closer and closer to landing at the stadium straight. That's how compressed the gap has become. This kind of travelling to a place that is seven and a half hours ahead of IST is difficult to adjust immediately. Hopefully, this will be taken into consideration in the future," he had pointed. "But this is the year of the World Cup and every T20 is important. So we can't lose our focus."
