New Zealand Cricket (NZC) unveiled their 15-member squad for the ICC T20 World Cup 2024 through an endearing video featuring two young cricket enthusiasts named Angus and Matilda. Shared on NZC’s official Twitter handle, the video captured the hearts of fans worldwide.

In the video, Angus and Matilda, exuding youthful exuberance, took center stage to announce the Black Caps’ squad for the upcoming tournament set to be held in the West Indies and the USA.

“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 charming duo expressed.

The video swiftly became viral, earning praise for NZC’s innovative approach to squad announcements. Social media buzzed with admiration for the refreshing twist, with many suggesting other cricket boards follow suit.
