WELLINGTON: Strong wind here spoiled the trophy unveiling ceremony of the upcoming three-match T20I series between New Zealand and India.
The two semi-finalists of the recently-concluded ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 will be up against each other in a three-match T20I series, scheduled to commence on Friday (November 18).
Consequently, both teams were posing alongside the trophy amid the unveiling ceremony before the strong wind spoiled the action as it almost blew the platform away.
New Zealand captain Kane Williamson was quick to respond as he took the trophy in his grasp, thus preventing it from falling to the ground.
Whereas India’s stand-in captain Hardik Pandya firmed the platform by holding it.
Williamson then hilariously nodded to walk away with the trophy and revealed his plans of beating India in the upcoming T20I series and said “I’ll have that!” before both captains shared a laugh.
Taking to Twitter, Blackcaps shared the footage of the hilarious incident which attracted a lot of attention from cricket fans.
