MUMBAI: Star Sports – India’s leading sports broadcaster has unveiled a new campaign for India’s tour of New Zealand. The five-match ODI and three T20 international matches starting January 23 will bring together two of crickets’ most celebrated captains– Kane Williamson and Virat Kohli.

Highlighting this interesting clash, the film conceptualised by Taproot India applauds the class and consistency of New Zealand captain Kane Williamson, who may be a King for fans in New Zealand but for Indian fans, “Cricket ka ek hi king hai” – King Kohli. The Blackcaps, given their 7-3 Win/Loss record at home in ODI series since 2015/16 represent a strong challenge for any visiting team. Furthermore, the New Zealand batsmen are in exceptional form as evidenced by the performance of Kane Williamson, Ross Taylor & Martin Guptill, who amassed 1054 runs in three innings against Sri Lanka, in the recently concluded ODI series. The pace bowling duo of Trent Boult and Tim Southee are also a force to recon with, especially in-home conditions. However, given India’s recent strong away performance against South Africa and Australia in ODIs, fans can look forward to an extremely competitive series between the two teams.

As a result of the partnership between Star Sports and New Zealand Cricket, fans in India would be able to view both the ODIs and T20I matches at ease. For the first time, ODIs in New Zealand will start at 7 am IST and the T20Is at 12.30 pm IST on the Star Sports Network.

Kohli led Team India will clash against the Blackcaps in the first ODI on January 23 in Napier. With both teams working to finalise their core playing group in the run-up to the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, this series plays an important role for both captains, especially for India, with only 10 ODI games to be played by the team before the ICC Cricket World Cup.

Star Sports will telecast the series LIVE in 5 languages – English, Hindi, Kannada, Tamil and Telugu and on Star Sports 1/HD, Star Sports 1 Hindi/HD, Star Sports 1 Kannada, Star Sports 1 Tamil and Star Sports 1 Kannada.

Cricket fans can enjoy the action in their preferred language with detailed analytical commentary including the usage of graphics and augmented reality (AR) on the Select Dugout which will be available on Star Sports Select 1/HD for all the T20Is.
