India and New Zealand will continue their World Cup semi-last on Wednesday following a downpour influenced day at Old Trafford.
New Zealand achieved 211-5 from 46.1 overs before downpour constrained the players from the field at 14:00 BST.
The downpour was not substantial but rather it was predictable enough to postpone play, with the umpires choosing at 18:25 no further activity would be conceivable.
It implies New Zealand will continue their innings at 10:30 on Wednesday and India will have the full 50 overs to pursue.
It was, no ifs, ands or buts, a frustrating day – India were on top on a moderate contribute front of a vociferous group, and returning for a subsequent day will be a calculated test for certain fans.
It does, be that as it may, appear to be the more attractive choice as it guarantees the two sides play an entire 50 overs.
