IND vs NZ VIDEO: India and New Zealand team is ready to start afresh leaving behind the T20 World Cup defeat. The Indian team has reached New Zealand with young players under the captaincy of Hardik Pandya after the semi-final defeat in Australia. At the same time, Kane Williamson is ready to take charge of New Zealand once again. The limited-overs series is starting between the two teams from Friday (November 18) in which three-match T20 and ODI series of the same number of matches will be played.
From India’s point of view, it is a good opportunity for young players to prove themselves. After the absence of senior players and disappointing performance in the World Cup, young players will try to make a mark here. New Zealand, on the other hand, would be eager to avenge their previous loss to India at home. In such a situation, a fierce competition is expected between the two teams.
However, before the match, the captains of both the teams, Hardik and Williamson were seen having fun together. Both of them together took a picture with the trophy received in the T20 series as well as rode a crocodile bike. In the video shared on the official Instagram account of New Zealand Cricket, Hardik and Williamson were seen riding this cycle bike together.
