Headline: Waikato farewells ICC Cricket World Cup in style


A large crowd enjoyed a tight encounter at Seddon Park as New Zealand continued their unbeaten run in the ICC Cricket World Cup.

District Operations Manager Inspector Karen Henrikson said the attentive crowd was largely well behaved and there were no serious incidents.

“It was great to see the positive interaction between the flamboyant Bangladesh supporters and the home-town fans,” Ms Henrikson said.

“There were only six evictions and two arrests as the crowd focused on the exciting action in the middle of Seddon Park.”

“Waikato Police have enjoyed being part of the ICC Cricket World Cup and we hope the festive and friendly atmosphere continues around the city for the rest of the evening.”
