India vs New Zealand World Cup 2019 Semi-Final: Match suspended for the day due to rain

India vs New Zealand: New Zealand were 211/5 in the 46th over with Ross Taylor unbeaten on 67 before rain stopped play at Manchester.

India take on New Zealand in the first of two semifinals of ICC World Cup 2019.

India vs New Zealand: The play for the day has been suspended due to uninterrupted rain. The match will resume tomorrow with New Zealand 211/5 in the 46th over. If the match is washed out on the reserve day too then India will automatically qualify for the finals courtesy of accumulating the higher number of points in the group stages.

Electing to bat, New Zealand got off to a poor start losing Martin Guptill early. Jasprit Bumrah gave India first breakthrough getting Guptill caught by Virat Kohli at slip in the fourth over when the score was just 1. Henry Nicholls and Williamson then steadied the innings. Nicholls scored 28 and shared a 68-run stand with skipper Kane Williamson before being bowled out by Ravindra Jadeja. Williamson (67) then slammed his half-century and took the score past 100. He shared a 65-run stand with Ross Taylor for the third wicket before giving a simple catch to Jadeja. Taylor then lifted New Zealand and took the score past 200 with his half-century.

Scenario 1
20:10 (IST)09 Jul 2019
What if no play is possible on the Reserve Day?

If after the scheduled day and reserve day the semi-final match has still not reached a result, the higher-placed team from the CWC19 league stage will progress to the final.

If there is no play possible on either the originally schedule day of the final, nor the Reserve Day, the World Cup will be shared by the two finalist teams.

19:55 (IST)09 Jul 2019
How does the Reserve Day work?

The reserve day will be a continuation not a restart, assuming play commenced on the original match day, meaning the score from the original match day will be carried through to the reserve day.

If no play was possible on the original planned match day, a full 50-over per team match will commence on the Reserve Day, weather permitting.

A tied match will use a super over to determine the winner.

19:47 (IST)09 Jul 2019
When are the Reserve Days?

Semi final 1: India vs New Zealand at Old Trafford – Wednesday 10th July (10.30am BST start time)

Semi final 2: England vs Australia at Edgbaston – Friday 12th July (10.30am BST start time)

Final: Winner SF1 vs Winner SF2 at Lord’s – Monday 15th July (10.30am BST start time)

DLS Targets-

Here is the scenario-

19:37 (IST)09 Jul 2019
More on Equations

The shorter the game, the stiffer the run-rate India will have to achieve. If it is a 20 over game now, the target would be 148. If, however, it becomes a 46 over game and India bat 20 overs, the target then will actually be just about 60-70 for no loss.
