NEW DELHI: After requesting his countrymen to stand in support of the Kiwis during the semi-final battle against South Africa, Brendon McCullum has utilized his public relations’ skills in the most appropriate way ahead of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 final against Australia on Sunday. 

In an open letter to the Indian fans on Saturday, the New Zealand Captain on the eve of the World Cup final has urged the nation passionate for cricket to stand united with his boys and extend their support to the Black Caps.

As the skipper is aware of the bitterness Indian fans have for Australia currently, he hammered it at the right time.  Benefiting from the aggression Indian fans are filled with following their defeat against Australia in semi-finals by 95 runs, McCullum has penned down a letter requesting  them to support his team in the final war.

“I know you understand the hunger for a World Cup. And I have already seen a wave of support from you guys towards us,” expressed Skipper McCullum in his letter.

The Captain also thanked the Indian fans for their continuous support. “We need every bit of it and I request your support towards NZ all the way, through every ball in the final,” he added.

“It’s the biggest game of our career and over a billion voices rooting for us will definitely count,” concluded McCullum.

Melbourne Cricket Ground is gigantic and accustomed to the small grounds; it will certainly be a challenge for the New Zealand to put an end to the run riot Aussies are creating at home. 

McCullum, a fan of letters, had earlier written a letter to ‘all the bosses in New Zealand’ at the time of its semi-final clash against South Africa urging them to grant leave to all the employees so that each one is able to cheer for them.

Here is the full text of the letter to the Indian fans:

To every cricket fan in India,

I know you understand the hunger for a World Cup

And I have already seen a wave of support from you guys towards us.

We need every bit of it and I request your support towards NZ all the way, through every ball, in the final.

It’s the biggest game of our career and over a billion voices rooting for us will definitely count.

Your #ForeverFaster

Brendon McCullum
