Wellington: New Zealand skipper Brendon McCullum reached out to a billion Indian fans for support ahead of the Black Caps’ 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup final against Australia at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. In a heart-warming letter addressed to ‘every cricket fan in India’, McCullum said he’d already seen a wave of support from the Indian fans already and requested their support through every ball in the final.
World Cup final, which will be played at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) against hosts Australia, McCullum is now hopeful that Indian fans who have already booked their tickets and were hopeful to see their team in the final will now be there to back Kiwis on Sunday.
In the pre-final press conference, Brendon McCullum said that he’s confident that the Indian fans will be rooting for the Kiwis.
“I reckon we might have the home crowd tomorrow actually. I think it’s probably no secret that most of the other teams around the world would probably fair New Zealand to win against Australia. So hopefully we’ll get a good smattering of support tomorrow, and I’m sure the Indian guys will certainly be rooting for us.”
