    More unhappy news from Nottingham!

    It’s getting dark at Trent Bridge, not much has happened on the ground between the last inspection and the next. The umpires look at the damp spots square of the wicket which are the areas of concern. As the players and officials are having lunch – it’s raining heavily once again and covers are back in place.

The India-New Zealand match was abandoned on Thursday without a bowl being bowled – the fourth such instance in the ongoing edition of World Cup – with both teams sharing a point each. Rain had been forecast for this game and repeated inspections of the ground afterwards did not bear any fruit. The no result meant New Zealand (7 points) stay on top while India (5 points) edge ahead of England (4 points) to the third spot with Australia (6 points) staying second. The Kiwis are yet to lose a game with three wins before this, while Virat Kohli and Co. have beaten South Africa and Australia to start their campaign on a high.

With opener Shikhar Dhawan ruled out for at least three weeks, it would have been KL Rahul’s first time as Rohit Sharma’s opening partner in ODI cricket. As there was no toss, it could not be ascertained as to who the team picked for the No. 4 slot with both allrounder Vijay Shankar and seasond stumper-batsman Dinesh Karthik available.

India vs New Zealand HIGHLIGHTS

New Zealand, on the other hand, have remained unbeaten throughout the tournament and have emerged as the most formidable and balanced unit so far. The Kiwis would be determined to not disturb their winning streak. However, they will also have to cross the hurdle of ‘Kulcha’ successfully to win their fourth consecutive game in the marquee event. Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal already have 22 Kiwi wickets between them in ODI and will pose the biggest threat to the New Zealand batting unit. (FULL COVERAGE)
