India’s white-ball tour of New Zealand will start on Friday. The two captains, Kane Williamson and Hardik Pandya, were part of a photo session and interaction with the media before the first T20I in Wellington.
A hilarious moment happened during the captains’ photo shoot with the trophy. The strong wind at the harbour almost blew the podium over, and the two players stopped it.
While Pandya caught the stand, Kane grabbed the trophy.
Williamson said, “I’ll have that!” India are on a six-match New Zealand tour and will play the shortest format first.
After three T20Is, the tour will move to as many ODIs, where Shikhar Dhawan will lead the Men in Blue.
The series is both teams’ first assignments s after T20 World Cup ended in Australia.
