The match to be hosted at the Greenfield International Stadium, Thiruvananthapuram, and will bring a spotlight on the waste (garbage) problem that can be a big headache for the stadium officials and administrators if spectators do not act responsibly.
Supporting the initiative, Tharoor tweeted, “Good to see this initiative before the Thiruvananthapuram T20 vs NZ. Sports lovers shouldn’t create a garbage problem.”
The campaign meanwhile reads, “When India and New Zealand lock horns on 7th November at the Greenfield International Stadium, Trivandrum, let’s take a pledge to enjoy the match responsibly, being sensitive to Mother Nature and supporting the Corporation of Thiruvananthapuram and KCA to make this a #zerowaste event. Let’s show the world we care!”
The third and the final T20 match of the series is a must-win for both teams. While India won the first match in Delhi, New Zealand won the second game to level the series at 1-1.
