Fans may see former United States President Barack Obama attending New Zealand's Day-Night Test against England at Eden Park in Auckland.
Black Caps’ Twitter account invited Obama to join the opening Test that begins on Thursday.
“@BarackObama we hear you’re coming to NZ! Want to see something better than Baseball? Our NZ cricket team is playing @englandcricket in a Test match from Thursday and we’d ♥️ you to come… have a seat and a shirt all set up for you ????," Kiwi's official Twitter account wrote.

Obama will be making his first trip to New Zealand on March 21.
New Zealand added Martin Guptill as cover for the injured Ross Taylor before the first Test. Taylor aggravated his thigh injury during his game-changing 181 not out in the fourth ODI versus England but is expected to play the Test.
New Zealand and England played a five-match ODI series which went down to the wire before England triumphed 3-2.
New Zealand Test Squad:
Jeet Raval, Tom Latham, Kane Williamson (c), Ross Taylor, Henry Nicholls, Colin de Grandhomme, BJ Watling (wk), Todd Astle, Tom Southee, Neil Wagner, Matt Henry, Trent Boult, Martin Guptill.
