International cricket is the epitome of the NZ summer experience.
International cricket is the epitome of the NZ summer experience. It’s what we do. It’s the catches in the crowd, the costumes, the immaculate field and that perfect pitch that we can only imagine having in our backyard. When we’re all there, we are the game.
The BLACKCAPS have an exciting line up of cricket in store for the capital this summer, kicking off their NZ season in Wellington with the first Test against Sri Lanka at the Basin Reserve. (Might be a good one to make some excuses and shoot off early from work to kick back and watch!)
Following that, the BLACKCAPS have a thrilling series against Team India, featuring both ODI and Twenty20 matches in Waitangi week at Westpac Stadium. We know how passionate both sides’ fans are, so these games will really set the scene for a good old-fashioned cricket party atmosphere (especially at the 5th and last ODI!). The Waitangi Day Twenty20 is a double header, with both the BLACKCAPS and WHITE FERNS taking to the pitch – plus Wellington band, Drax Project are also taking to the pitch with a live performance between games!
The WHITE FERNS knock the capital for six when they dish up a double dose of cricket alongside the BLACKCAPS on the Waitangi Day International Twenty20 at Westpac Stadium. They go up against the Indian women’s cricket team, playing before the BLACKCAPS take the pitch against the Indian men’s cricket team. The WHITE FERNS have already got off to a great start to their T20 campaign this season, with a six-wicket victory over Sri Lanka’s women’s team. India are always a strong contender on the cricket world stage, so this will be an exciting match to watch – and we know fans from both sides will be ready to make a racket.
