The much-awaited two-Test series between India and New Zealand is all set to start at the Basin Reserve in Wellington from February 21.
On the eve of the series opener, India vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane addressed the media and stole the show by speaking in Marathi with a journalist.
Rahane was seen praising New Zealand’s picturesque beauty and had special words for a lake in Queenstown. Hailing the Kiwi tourism, the veteran batsman also went on to say that it can be enjoyed even more with a cup of coffee and poha – a famous Maharashtrian dish.
Here’s the video:
Having won the Test series against West Indies (2-0; away), South Africa (3-0; home) and Bangladesh (2-0; home), Team India are leading the World Test Championship (WTC) points table with 360 points.
