New Delhi, April 29 (IANS) New Zealand Cricket came up with a unique way to announce their 15-member squad for the T20 World Cup 2024 on Monday. Two kids named Angus and Matilda made the announcement, a video of which was shared by NZC on their official Twitter handle.

“Good morning everyone. Thank you for coming here. I am Matilda. I am Angus. And today, it will be a pleasure to announce you the Black Caps squad for the ICC T20 World Cup in West Indies and USA,” the kids said.

The video went viral and netizens are in awe with NZC’s unique style of making their squad public. Some even suggested other boards too to follow it.

“Other boards need to learn, it is just a sport, not a defence deal. Make it entertaining and chill atmosphere for both players and fans,” wrote one.

The T20 World Cup 2024 is slated to take place in the West Indies and the USA, starting on June 1.

Williamson will resume his captaincy duties for New Zealand at the tournament.
