INDIA VS NEW ZEALAND 2019 Highlights: India vs New Zealand World Cup match was called off after continuous rain throughout the day on Thursday. The umpires inspected the ground multiple times but the weather did not allow for even the toss to take place at Trent Bridge, Nottingham. The inspection which was scheduled for 6:00 pm could not happen again because of rain. Another inspection was scheduled at 7:00 pm which again was not satisfying for the umpires and they finally called off the match at 7:30 pm. The ground conditions were not ideal for a match with the outfield being soggy which could have been dangerous for the players.
Virat Kohli and Kane Williamson said it was disappointing for the game but they will look to focus on what lies ahead in the tournament. New Zealand had won the practice match against India. India will face Pakistan in their next match which will take place in Manchester.
India and New Zealand are still unbeaten in the tournament and both teams have shared one point each after the washout today. Virat Kohli and his side will be hoping to win their fourth match of the tournament against Pakistan on June 16. The match should be a good contest between bat and ball provided that rain does not interfere again.
