New Zealand's verified page takes a swipe at Team India; 3 Kiwi players liked the post
New Zealand were the first team that qualified for the ICC World Test Championship final. After that, Team India locked horns with England in the four-match Test series and the winner of the series would qualify for the final. India found themselves in a spot of bother after losing the Test opener in Chennai.
However, the hosts made a terrific comeback in the next three games and won all three games to seal the deal. India won the series by 3-1 and qualified for the World Test Championship. The inaugural edition of the ICC WTC final will be held in Southampton, England on June 18.
New Zealand captain Kane Williamson and Indian captain Virat Kohli haven't won any major ICC event so far and both captains will be looking forward to the contest. Meanwhile, Kiwis will fly to England to play two-match Test series starting from June 2. The Kiwis have an upper hand of getting accustomed to the conditions in England.
Verified page of New Zealand trolls Team India
Just a couple of days ago, former England captain Michael Vaughan trolled Virat Kohli by calling that Kane Williamson would have been the best batsman in the world had he been born in India. He also went on to pick New Zealand as the clear-cut favourites of the ICC WTC final.
Meanwhile, a verified page of New Zealand by the name of "theaccnz" took a dig at Team India. The drama unfolded when the official handle of the page posted the picture starring New Zealand captain and Indian captain as the ICC WTC final is just a month away from going all guns blazing.
The caption reads: “World Test Championship final, Ind vs NZ”. Although there is nothing really wrong with the post, the description of the post certainly caused massive outrage on social media. Indian fans roasted the page admin for his unnecessary comment.
The description reads: “Bad news India… you can’t create a dust bowl pitch at Lord’s…” Shockingly, three New Zealand cricketers namely Trent Boult, Tim Southee and Tom Latham liked the post.
