Tour of Pakistan, India, and Ceylon
The visit of the Second New Zealand Expeditionary Force team to India after the Second World War was the first by a New Zealand side to any country other than Australia. After the Rome Olympics there was a brief tour of Pakistan, India, and Ceylon to gain further international experience as well as to repay visits to New Zealand. The first-class surfaces and the stiff competition allowed the New Zealand team to excel itself. New Zealand won three games, lost two, and drew two.
