New Delhi: The Indian team is currently on a tour of New Zealand. The first T20 match between India and New Zealand was abandoned due to rain. Team India, under the leadership of Hardik Pandya, is now ready for the match to be held on Sunday. Before that the Indian team reached Tauranga city. Where people welcomed him ‘Pohiri’ on his arrival.
Powhiri is a Maori welcoming ceremony. In which speech, cultural program and singing are included. It is organized to welcome the guests. It is very popular in New Zealand. At the start of the ceremony there is a challenge for non-Māori speakers. This is the most spectacular part of Pohiri.
Pictures of Pohiri have been posted from the Twitter account of CSK Fan Club. In which the players of Team India are included in the Pohiri reception.
Super Special Welcome for #TeamIndia from a Māori powhiri in Mount Maunganui on November 19, before the 2nd T20I vs Black Caps on November 20.
