Rain forces India-New Zealand World Cup semi-final into reserve day

Facebook  ICC World Cup

At the close of play, Ross Taylor was unbeaten on 67 runs off 85 balls with Tom Latham alongside him.

PREVIEW: Rain stopped play in the first semifinal between India and New Zealand at the Old Trafford on Tuesday with the Kiwi scoreboard reading 211/5 after 46.1 overs.

The New Zealand captain, who was hitting a few slog sweeps against the turn was getting impatient having reached 50 off 79 balls.

But after more than four hours off the field, the umpires eventually decided there was no prospect of even a 20 overs per side match - the minimum required under the Duckworth-Lewis method for rain-affected matches - being completed on Tuesday and they abandoned play for the day at 6:20 pm (1720 GMT).

If the first Powerplay was witness to fine exhibition of swing bowling under overcast conditions, the middle overs had Pandya using the newly-laid two-paced pitch to good effect, bringing the slow bouncer to the fore.

Ravindra Jadeja, preferred ahead of Kuldeep Yadav, was economical, as was Jasprit Bumrah, whose probing lines and changes of pace meant he conceded only 25 runs from his eight overs.

The group stage table-toppers burned their review after the first ball, Bhuvneshwar Kumar rapping Martin Guptill on the pads but Hawkeye showing the delivery was sliding past leg-stump.

That task - needing 7.4 runs per over on a wicket which seemed tricky to score on during the Black Caps' innings - arguably would have been more hard than what they will face tomorrow, with the Black Caps needing some serious late hitting to set India a total above 250 in their 50 overs.

"We've played really good cricket in Manchester, two really good game, it's just about doing the same things again". He also picked up the wicket of Henry Nicholls (28). "To come back tomorrow, they will finish the game, it's the fair way to do it, and I think it makes India the favourites coming into tomorrow", he said on Cricinfo.

Australia and England meet in the other semi-final Thursday night.
