Blackcaps to take on Australia in Wellington

From Morning Report, 7:28 am on 29 February 2024

The Blackcaps are set to take on Australia at Wellington's Basin Reserve this morning in the first test of a two-match cricket series.

It has been 31 years since New Zealand took out its biggest rival on its own soil, and the venue was sold out a month ago.

The second test, at Christchurch's Hagley Oval in March, is also on the cusp of being sold out.

Co-founder of the Biege Brigade, a community of die-hard New Zealand cricket fans, Paul Ford will be down at the basin bright and early. He spoke to Corin Dann.
