World Cup 2015, 1st semi-final: Brendon McCullum's writes innovative letter of excuse for Kiwi fans

New Delhi: History will be up for grabs on Tuesday as co-hosts New Zealand take on South Africa in the first semi-final of the ICC World Cup 2015 in Auckland.

The atmosphere is brimming with excitement in New Zealand, as the Black Caps have never made it to the final of cricket's showpiece event.

Brendon McCullum, who has been credited for Kiwis' unbeaten run in the tournament, has come up with a very innovative way – a letter which is an invitation for all the Kiwi fans from across the country to come and support their team as they lock horns with AB de Villiers & Co.

McCullum’s letter:

While the co-hosts have two in-form seamers in Trent Boult and Tim Southee, South Africa too boast of a quality seam attack in Dale Steyn, Morne Morkel and Kyle Abbott.

After their skipper's unique appeal, Eden Park is expected to be jam-packed for the second semi-final.
