IND vs NZ T20I Series: Hardik and Williamson ride crocodile bike on Wellington streets I Watch Video
India’s skipper Hardik Pandya and New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson were seen riding a crocodile bike on the streets of Wellington as both posed for a picture ahead of the T20I series. Both India and New Zealand are set to lock horns in a three-match T20I series on Friday (November 18). Both the players were seen enjoying their timeout before the big series as they look to put their recent disappointments of the T20 World Cup semifinal behind them.
In a video posted on the Instagram handle of the Blackcaps, both Hardik and Kane were seen riding a crocodile bike before they also posed with the T20I Series Trophy. Both teams are already geared up for the series, with India arriving from Australia.
New Zealand in the meantime also announced their ODI and T20I squads for the home series against India as Kane Williamson-led side has made a bold decision to key senior members. In an announcement made on Tuesday (November 15), Martin Guptill and Trent Boult have been axed from the squad as the new guns have been given opportunities. New Zealand will play Hardik Pandya-led India on Friday (November 18) in Wellington in the first T20I as both teams look to find momentum after the semifinal exit in the T20 World Cup 2022.
The Black Caps will take on the powerful India line-up in a total of six white-ball contests (three T20Is and three ODIs) starting on Friday and the Kiwis announced a pair of 13-player squads for the matches on Tuesday.
