Wellington: Women's cricket on Tuesday received a fillip when the victorious New Zealand women cricketers (Clear White Ferns) were paraded at the Basin Reserve during the lunch break of the Boxing Day men's Test match between New Zealand and Zimbabwe.The Ferns clinched victory on Saturday against the mighty Aussies in one of the most exciting World Cup finals ever. The victorious team was flown into Wellington in order to give them a warm reception in appreciation of their epoch making feat.Players were introduced to the more than enthusiastic crowd, interviews were held with captain Emily Drumm and retiring players Catherine Campbell and Debbie Hockley.The players, carrying their trophies and their winner's medals, then walked around the outside of the ground to a standing ovation. They stopped and signed autographs, had their photos taken and shook hands.The cricketers, who otherwise play to a sparse gallery, were thrilled at the occasion and the reception the team received.

Extras:
Belinda's effort in vain, Kiwis pip Aussies by 4 runs
