World Cup 2019 Semifinal: Ind vs NZ - Match moved to reserve day due to rain

Indian bowlers restricted the Black Caps from scoring big runs in the first semifinal of the World Cup 2019 which was moved to the reserve day after heavy rain in Manchester.

New Zealand began the innings in a nervy fashion scoring just one run from the first 21 balls. Jasprit Bumrah struck in the fourth over removing Martin Guptill through a brilliant slip catch from Virat Kohli. Photo: Getty Images

Skipper Kane Williamson, with Ross Taylor, set out to rebuild the innings and reached his half-century in the proces. However, he was unable to convert it into a big score as Yuzvendra Chahal's turning delivery got an outside edge to Jadeja at short-thirdman. Photo: Getty Images
Ross Taylor tried to inject some momentum late into the innings as he reached his fiftieth ODI fifty with a six off Chahal in the 44th over. However, the wickets of James Neesham, Colin de Grandhomme and a rain interruption halted a late flourish. Photo: Getty Images

Despite the tireless efforts of the ground staff to drain water off the damp outfield, heavy showers for more than two hours prevented any further play on Tuesday, forcing the match into the reserve day on Wednesday. Photo: getty images
