Former bowler backs Black Caps cautious approach to semi-final

Former bowler backs Black Caps cautious approach to semi-final”

Rain forced players to walk off the field after 46.1 overs and as per ICC's playing conditions, the game will resume on Wednesday from where it stopped. As per the stipulated rules of the tournament, the match officials tried their best to complete the match on Tuesday, and there were attempts made to put together a 20-overs match, but the rain did not allow any such scenario.

On a sluggish pitch, the Kiwi batsmen struggled to accelerate and were bogged down for the most part. Also, there will be a cloud cover throughout the day and more rains are expected around 9.30 PM IST.

New Zealand's batting was slow with their first three overs maidens, while Martin Guptil was dimissed for just one in the third over.

For India, as usual, Jasprit Bumrah was economical with the ball and provided India with the early breakthrough.

He was thrust into action nearly immediately after India were invited to field on a ground where the side that has batted first in five previous matches in this tournament went on to win.

As it stands, New Zealand are at a precarious position of 211/5 in 46.1 overs.

Once the spinners came on there was more turn than expected and New Zealand continued to find it hard to score.

That brought together Williamson and Taylor but even the two experienced hands could not turn the tide, a watchful stand of 65 in exactly 17 overs yielding only five fours.

Taylor eventually kicked into gear, launching Chahal over deep mid-wicket for the first maximum of the innings to get to his 50 as New Zealand took 18 from the leg-spinner's final over.

The MET department predicts another gloomy day - the reserve day for the semifinal - on Wednesday (July 10).

Hosts England play defending champions Australia in the second semi-final on Thursday.
