India vs New Zealand World Cup 2019 1st Semi-Final

Rain in the 2019 World Cup

1st Semi-final of ICC World Cup 2019 was played between India and previous World Cup edition finalists New Zealand. New Zealand won the toss and elected to bat first. Rain suspended the match and the game will resume on 10th July. New Zealand will continue their batting at 211/5 from 46.1 overs, with Ross Taylor and Tom Latham in the middle.

This was the fourth match of World Cup 2019 to be abandoned so far, and the third to be called off without a ball being bowled. And India’s match against New Zealand has been interrupted second time in this World Cup.

The ICC World Cup 2019 has already surpassed the previous highest number of washed-out matches in a World Cup – two in 1992 and 2003. Unlike league stages, ICC has kept reserved days for semi-finals and finale of World Cup 2019. If tomorrow somehow results in the match is not possible then India will advance to finals as they had finished at the top in the group stage. But the worse news for cricket fans is the forecast for tomorrow does not look too bright either but let’s hope we finish the game and have a clear finalist. 

Squad 

India Playing XI – Lokesh Rahul, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (c), Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, MS Dhoni (wk), Dinesh Karthik, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ravindra Jadeja, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal. 

New Zealand Playing XI – Martin Guptill, Henry Nicholls, Kane Williamson (c), Ross Taylor, Tom Latham (wk), James Neesham, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Lockie Ferguson, Matt Henry, Trent Boult.

New-zealand-1st-semi-finals

New Zealand had a turtle start to their innings as both openers were in defensive mode and were struggling in the middle while facing India’s deadly fast bowlers’ combo Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja also bowled tightly which didn’t give New Zealand even a single chance to get easy runs for their side. Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor helped New Zealand to get out of that nasty situation and helped to head towards a respectable total of 211-5 in 46.1 overs.

Quick Summary

New Zealand – 211-5 (46.1)
Kane Williamson – 67, Ross Taylor – 67*
Jasprit Bumrah – 8-1-25-1
