India vs New Zealand (Ind vs NZ), World Cup 2019 Semi-Final: The first semifinal of Cricket World Cup 2019 between India and New Zealand in Manchester has been interrupted by rain. With 23 balls still remaining in the New Zeland innings, players from both the teams walked off the field as rain got heavier.

New Zealand were 211/5 in the 46.1 overs with Ross Taylor unbeaten on 67 before rain stopped play. The Black Caps were on their way to a fighting total when it started drizzling and covers were brought on after it started pouring heavily.

Taylor along with wicketkeeper-batsman Tom Latham will resume the Kiwi innings on Wednesday. Both Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah would like to wrap the New Zealand innings as quickly as possible.

So as a guide to how the DLS equation pans out- If New Zealand does not bat again in their innings, DLS-adjusted target for 46 overs will be 237. If the match is further reduced to 40 overs, then the target will be 223 runs.

Ultimately if the chase is reduced to 20 overs then the target will be 148 runs.

As per reports, it is likely to rain today as well and just in case if the match is washed out India will qualify for the finals, courtesy of their standings on the points table.

Meanwhile, former cricketers have come down heavily on the pitch used for the first World Cup semi-final between India and New Zealand here at Old Trafford.

“Doesn’t look a great pitch at Old Trafford. Very much on the slow side and offering some turn. If NZ can somehow get to 240 they will be in the game,” Mark Waugh wrote on Twitter.
