Blackcaps vs India: Police issue cheeky warning to Indian cricketers with rowdy tourists reference

While the infamous British rowdy tourists have left the country, local Police now have their hands tied with more visitors causing havoc in New Zealand.

In a light-hearted Facebook post, the Eastern District Police have used the rowdy tourists' saga to poke fun at the Blackcaps after back-to-back thrashings against India in their five-match one-day international series.

"Witnesses report seeing this group badly assault an innocent looking bunch of New Zealanders in both Napier and Mt Maunganui in the last week. Extra care should be taken if you are carrying anything that looks like a cricket bat or ball."

The post has nearly 2000 likes, 852 comments and 1,500 shares.

The Blackcaps lost the opening ODI by eight wickets in Napier and then got crushed in the second by 90 runs in Mt Maunganui.

The third ODI takes place at Bay Oval at Mt Maunganui on Monday, which the Blackcaps must win to keep the series alive.
