New Zealand cricket team trolled by police after ODI defeats
The New Zealand cricket team was subject to brutal trolling by their Eastern District Police after they suffered two consecutive ODI defeats at the hands of the Indian cricket team. The Black Caps are playing a five-match ODI series against India. In a Facebook post, the Eastern District Police warned New Zealanders about a group (India) touring the country presently. Further details below.
In their post on Facebook, the Eastern District Police said, "Witnesses report seeing this group badly assault an innocent looking bunch of New Zealanders in both Napier and Mt Maunganui in the last week", referring to the two defeats suffered by New Zealand. They also warned New Zealanders against carrying anything that looked like a cricket bat or ball.
India picked up victory in the first ODI via the DLS method, having bowled out the Kiwis within 157 runs in 38 overs. Kuldeep Yadav collected four scalps to Mohammad Shami's three, while Shikhar Dhawan scored a 103-ball 75. India then routed New Zealand in the second ODI again, scoring 324 runs and bundling the New Zealanders up within 234 runs in 40.2 overs.
The third ODI starts at 7:00 AM tomorrow at Mount Maunganui, followed by the fourth on January 31 and the fifth on February 3 at Hamilton and Wellington respectively. After the ODI series, the two countries will meet for a three-match T20I series.
