Sidharth challenges New Zealand cricket legends to a glacier match

Sidharth challenges New Zealand cricket legends to a glacier match

One common factor that binds India and New Zealand is a game of cricket! And this is precisely what happened when Sidharth met legendary cricketer Stephen Fleming during his trip to New Zealand.

Sidharth wanted to learn a few strokes and Stephen was glad to teach him the same; only in a different way; i.e., on top of a glacier! He took Sidharth on a helicopter along with his fellow cricketers Simon Doull and Scott Styris. During their quick flight, Sidharth found himself entirely engrossed in the breath-taking scenic beauty that the region offers.

The boys enjoyed the game at Isobel Glacier in Mount Aspiring National Park, Queenstown at the height of 7600lft in the midst of magnificent mountain peaks and crystal clear lake. He said, “New Zealand keeps surprising me. Just when you think you have seen it all, I land up on a glacier in a helicopter and play cricket with the legends.”

About the activity:
• Helicopter flight starts with flight over the iconic landscapes of Queenstown, Milford Sound, Fiordland and Mt Aspiring    National Parks.
• Sidharth accompanied by New Zealand cricket legends, Stephen Fleming, Simon Doull and Scott Styris.
