India’s tour of New Zealand

The Indian cricket team starts it tour of New Zealand with a T20 International.
It then plays 5 ODI's and two Tests.
Do you think it is ideal to start a overseas tour by playing ODI's and then play Tests?

T20 will take the shine of the other two.

R,

Also India has different teams for each format.

For example, for the T20, Yusuf Pathan is a certainty, but a doubtful starter for ODI's. Similarly, Parveen Kumar is a certainty for ODI's.

The worse follows, excepting Tendulkar,Dhoni and the bowlers no other Test players are a certainty for the ODI's.

So the sequence of the format is important on a overseas tour.
