Cricket and Bollywood are two big hits in India. Actor Sidharth Malhotra is having a great time with former New Zealand cricketers. The actor is the brand ambassador of Tourism New Zealand and he seems to be having a gala time in the beautiful country. He recently met New Zealand Prime Minister John Key. He has been flooding the social media with the wonderful pictures and this time around, he paid a visit at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch, where he played alongside former New Zealand captains Stephen Fleming and Brendon McCullum. The ground is the venue for the first Test between Pakistan and New Zealand, which is starting on Thursday, November 17.

McCullum, who retired from international cricket earlier this year, is still an active cricketer and is a member of the Gujarat Lions contingent in the IPL. Stephen Fleming, who was the celebrated coach for Chennai Super Kings (CSK), is now the coach of Rising Pune Supergiants, a side led by MS Dhoni. McCullum and Fleming are rated as two of the finest captains to have led New Zealand and enjoy an immense fan following in India too. The fun for the trio did not stop there as they trio also went for a bike ride.

 

Earlier this week, a devastating earthquake caused enough damage in New Zealand, especially in the South Island and the epicenter was near Christchurch. Sidharth through a series of tweets expressed his concerns and let his fans know that he is safe.

 

 

Earlier this year, Sidharth played cricket at the glacier with Fleming, Scott Styris and Simon Doull

One has to envy Sidharth for this but one thing we can surely tell is that New Zealand is truly a paradise.
