New Zealand cricket team announces support for bushfire appeal

The New Zealand cricket team has advised that it will make a contribution towards the appeal for victims of the bushfires in Victoria, Australia.

The BLACKCAPS team and management, along with New Zealand Cricket, today extended their sympathy to those affected by the fires, and expressed their wish to contribute to the appeal through a financial donation.

In addition, the players will each donate a signed series shirt to be auctioned, with the proceeds going to the bushfire appeal.

The BLACKCAPS, who meet Australia in the fourth match of the Commonwealth Bank One Day International series at Adelaide tomorrow, will join with the Australian team in observing a minute’s silence prior to the match, and will wear black armbands in acknowledgement of the tragedy.
