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

Cricket World Cup fans

After the rain interruption on Tuesday, the forecast for Wednesday doesn't look too good either, as there are chances of showers in patches even as India and New Zealand look to resume their battle in the first semifinal of the ICC World Cup at Old Trafford.

Ross Taylor was batting on 67 with Tom Latham on three at the other end when rain forced the players off.

The group match between 2015 finalists New Zealand and twice champions India last month was one of the four "no-result" matches in the rain-hit tournament.

After a brilliant start by Jasprit Bumrah (1/25 in 8 overs) and Bhuvneshwar Kumar (1/30 in 8.1 overs), Ravindra Jadeja (1/38 off 10 overs) and Hardik Pandya (1/55 in 10 overs) did well in the middle overs to keep the opposition under check.

He was thrust into action nearly immediately after India were invited to field on a ground where the side that has batted first in five previous matches in this tournament went on to win.

The 27-year-old had spent four years with the Spanish champions, winning the Champions League in 2015 and two LaLiga titles. Brazil forward failed to turn up for the first day of pre-season training and PSG say they will take "appropriate action".

That was one delivery that Taylor initially found hard to get away as the dot ball count increased with each over. While Bumrah started the show by dismissing Martin Guptill for 1, Yuzvendra Chahal snared the all-important wicket of Williamson.

"It looks like a good surface", New Zealand captain Kane Williamson said. Any advantage earned on the scheduled day will be carried through to the reserve day.

A fresh day will certainly be advantageous for India as it will be a continuation and not a restart. A tied match will use a super over to determine the victor.

Henry Nicholls made it to double figures for the first time in three innings before being bowled through the gate for 28 off 51 balls by a delivery that turned back into him off Jadeja. If the semifinal has not reached a result after the scheduled day and reserve day, the higher-placed team from the league stage will progress to the final.
