Know what will happen if India vs New Zealand match gets abandoned

India vs New Zealand 1st semi-final,World Cup 2019,ICC World Cup 2019

Despite half-centuries from skipper Kane Williamson (67 off 95 balls) and veteran Ross Taylor (67 not out off 85 balls), the Black Caps could not force the pace against tournament's best bowling attack. New Zealand were batting on 211/5 at that stage and with no further play possible, the remainder of the match was deferred to Wednesday.

"I'm very happy for him and hope he gets two more (centuries) so we can win two more games", said Kohli, terming his deputy as the best one-day cricketer at the moment.

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.

Rain stopped play on Tuesday with the Kiwis 211 for five after 46.1 overs. That support is a positive and a burden and India at [1.37] don't float my boat, so New Zealand offer more meat on the bone at [3.6].

At the end of the round-robin stage, India finished on top of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 points table. Getting Rohit early in the innings will be key to New Zealand chances of qualifying for the final and Boult will look to do just that. A fresh day will certainly be advantageous for India as it will be a continuation and not a restart.

In 2015, they again played the semifinal but failed to reach the final. "India will be required to bat for at least 20 overs to complete the match", the governing International Cricket Council said in a statement.

New Zealand have played 87 matches since 1975. Let us begin with Hotstar, the digital arm of Star India and probably the most popular option among viewers in India.

Twice champions India also made a change to the side that beat Sri Lanka in their final group match, bringing in Yuzvendra Chahal in place of fellow wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav.

And just in case you can not watch the match on a television channel or any of the live streaming options, simply follow the radio commentary of India vs New Zealand ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 match on Prasar Bharati Sports.

The 32-year-old has taken the World Cup by storm since Day 1, scoring 122 not out against South Africa in India's opening game.

That brought together Williamson and Taylor but even the two experienced hands could not turn the tide, a watchful stand of 65 in exactly 17 overs yielding only five fours.

While fans are expecting a high-intensity contest, weather might play a spoilsport.
