A little kid named Will shared a thanking letter he wrote for the Kane Williamson-led New Zealand side and New Zealand Cricket (NZC) upon being asked to be a special toss representative for the recent Hamilton T20I against Pakistan. 

The kid was asked to join the two skippers, including BlackCaps leader Williamson and Pakistan captain Shaheen Afridi, at the toss and shared a memorable click with the two giants of international cricket. 

NZC disclosed the letter the kid sent them after attending the game and thanking the authorities for giving him a memory to savour for a lifetime. 

Little Kid Grateful Of NZC After Attending Toss For Hamilton T20I 

"Thank you for picking me to be the coin toss kid for the BlackCaps vs Pakistan game in the Seddon Park, Hamilton that was played last night," the kid wrote on 15th January, a day after the fixture, as disclosed by NZC on their Instagram handle. 

The letter revealed the kid not only posed for pictures with Shaheen and Williamson but also earned the chance to interact with the rest of the players part of the two competing sides and get their signatures. 

"I really liked it and got most players' signatures on my bat. I was really nervous to start with but every one was nice to me. Some day I want to be a BlackCaps myself. Thanks for letting me do that last night," the kid wrote. 

As part of their crowd attraction and encouragement tactics with the young spectators visiting New Zealand grounds for matches, NZC gives certain kids the chance to attend tosses for home internationals. 

Will watched with a grin as Williamson flipped the coin while Shaheen called it at the Seddon Park. The kid would've felt delighted and dreamed of one day representing New Zealand himself.
