The rain hasn't been friendly in the ongoing ICC World Cup 2019 as consistent pouring has already abandoned three of the last seven matches at the crucial event. After a full 100-over encounter between Australia and Pakistan on Wednesday in Taunton, all eyes on the Trent Bridge in Nottingham where India take on New Zealand in the biggest clash of the Titans. However, cricket fans might face disappointment on Thursday as the weather forecast in Nottingham isn't the best for a cricket match.
The toss between India and New Zealand was delayed as the rain returned at Trent Bridge. The rain has been intermittent, and an inspection will be done later on to find out how soon can the match start if the rain remains away.
India versus New Zealand - Head to head record in ODIs:
India won: 55
New Zealand won: 45
No result: 5
New Zealand is 3-0 and India 2-0 to start the tournament.
Two-time World Cup champion India has won six of the last seven one-day internationals against New Zealand, including the most recent in February.
But in World Cup history, New Zealand leads India 4-3, including their only previous encounter at Nottingham in 1999.
Ganesh, reporters at the venue, informed that "The rain is heavier now. Covers are back on again." There are many visible mud patches on the ground, so Umpires will not want to take chances with players' safety. Next inspection is at 6:30 pm IST.
Very dark now. Huge cloud. This is proper rain. Think both teams will stay unbeaten now.....— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) June 13, 2019
