The Australia national cricket team toured New Zealand from February to April 1928 and played six first-class matches including two against the New Zealand national cricket team. This was before New Zealand began playing Test cricket.[1]


Don Bradman, Percy Hornibrook and John Scaife were selected as emergencies, but did not take part in the tour.[2]
