Mumbai: The Indian cricket team led by Mahendra Singh Dhoni returned from New Zealand after losing both One-day International and Test series, in what turned out to a disastrous tour.

Soon after landing here last night, all the team members took connecting flights to their respective cities.

India lost the five-match ODI series 0-4, followed by two-Test rubber 0-1 against a lowly ranked New Zealand.

The Indian cricketers now have a short break prior to leaving for Bangladesh on February 23 to compete in the Asia Cup.

The Asia Cup commences on February 25 and India will begin their campaign against the hosts on February 26 at Fatullah.

Asia Cup will be followed by ICC Twenty20 World Cup, starting on March 16 in Mirpur.
