The New Zealand men’s cricket team’s recent triumph in the ICC World Test Championship will be celebrated in Tauranga next week.

Whilst it might not be the all-out parade that Tauranga MP Simon Bridges was after, the students at one school in the area will undoubtedly be excited.

The tour of the Mace trophy won by the team in England last month will be visiting Tauranga Intermediate School from 9am on Wednesday, July 28. It will then proceed to Hamilton later the same day.

Tauranga have special reason to celebrate the win, with Blackcaps captain Kane Williamson, fast bowler Trent Boult, paceman Neil Wagner and all-rounder Colin de Grandhomme all having Bay of Plenty connections.

Members of the public, including children, will have the chance to be photographed with the iconic “Mace” trophy and selected Blackcaps, as well as collect posters and signatures along the tour – which begins in Whangarei on Monday morning.

Further details, including which Blackcaps will be expected at each venue will be advised later this week.

The following table details the tour.
