Cute five-year-old girl bursts into song for her Black Caps heroes

New Zealand's inspirational journey to the Cricket World Cup final has captured the imaginations of even their youngest fans including five-year-old Ella-Gray.

The Auckland youngster has been cheering on her Black Caps heroes during the tournament, and reserves a special chant for powerful and popular all-rounder Corey Anderson.

During a video filmed by her father, the youngster, sat in front of a television, and cradling a cricket bat, bursts into song and chants: "Corey, Corey, Corey, Corey Anderson, he bats and bowls, he bowls and bats."

The moment, during last Tuesday's tense semi-final between New Zealand and South Africa, shows the level of support Black Caps captain Brendon McCullum and his team have received from around the country.

"I'm a mad Alternative Commentary fan so my daughter Ellla sings the chants because she constantly hears me and my mates singing them," her father told ONE News.

The humorous Alternative Commentary Collective has been broadcasting live radio commentary of every Black Caps match.

"Gotta [sic] get everyone behind the boys, even the young kiddies," he said.

The video was posted to Radio Sport broadcaster Tony Veitch's Facebook page in the hope of winning a competition for two tickets to tomorrow's final against Australia at the MCG in Melbourne.


Four arrested at Auckland state housing protest

Four people have been arrested in Auckland after breaking into a home as part of a protest around state housing, police say.

Tamaki Housing Group is today protesting at the Northern Glen Innes Redevelopment, saying "long-standing Glen Innes residents were evicted from their [state] homes" to make way for private homes.

The group planned to "disrupt the 2pm open home that was set for this afternoon".

Police say the majority of protesters stayed off the property, and only the four people who broke into the open home on Apirana Avenue were arrested.

THG said in a statement today it "demands that these houses be given to state housing tenants and to stop the current redevelopment process which benefits private developers not the community that is being destroyed".
