ICC Cricket World Cup 2019: India vs New Zealand: Rain washes out match at Trent Bridge, both teams get 1 point each

ICC Cricket World Cup 2019: India vs New Zealand: Rain washes out match at Trent Bridge, both teams get 1 point each

Nottingham, June 13: Rain continues to play a spoilsport in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 as the league match between India and New Zealand here in Nottingham was abandoned without toss being held on Thursday (June 13).

The umpires kept waiting for the inclement weather to improve at Trent Bridge but it kept getting worse to eventually force the umpires and the match officials to call of the game. The two teams - who were unbeaten in the tournament - will now share one point each.

Umpires said the ground staff tried their best but weather is in no one's control.

"It's been unfortunate but that's the way it is. The groundstaff did their best but the weather 48 hours prior to today made it really difficult for them. I am not sure what the forecast is but hopefully, the weather is better for Sunday (India-Pakistan game)," said umpires.

"It's disappointing not to get any match time at all. It's not bad from the team's point of view as playing on such fields is not good for the players," said India captain Virat Kohli after the match was called off.

Blackcaps' captain Kane Williamson also said that they aren't too surprised with the result as they had hardly seen any sun in the last four days.

"We have been here for 4 days and haven't seen any sun, so doesn't come as a too much of a surprise for us," Williamson said.

India and New Zealand were ready to put their 100 per cent records on the line on Thursday (June 13) - but their clash ended in soggy fashion at Trent Bridge. India will now face arch-rivals Pakistan in their next encounter. While New Zealand will face South Africa now.

Here's the little bit of action away from the field that happened during the match:

Kane Williamson: We have been here for 4 days and haven't seen any sun, so doesn't come as a too much of a surprise for us. You just try and get what you need off it (about the frustrating wait during the rain) Not ideal and at the same time little bit of time off is also very important in these tournaments. We do have a little break now which I guess is an interesting period sort of midway through the tournament, a good chance for us to freshen up and look forward to the next challenge. They (Tim Southee and Henry Nicholls) are progressing really nicely. South Africa are a very good side and everytime we play them there's bit of extra competitiveness there

07:46 pm

India will now face arch-rivals Pakistan in their next encounter. While New Zealand will face South Africa now.

07:44 pm

Virat Kohli: Disappointing not to get any game time at all. From the players' point of view and where the teams are placed, it was better suited not to take the field when it is not safe to play. Don't want an injury at this stage. We've been playing some good cricket, we're not too worried about where we stand. Having two wins does give you confidence. A couple of practice sessions and we should be fine. It's only about getting game time and that should happen on Sunday. (On the Indo-Pak rivalry) As soon as you enter the field, it's all calm. All the excitement and frenzy around the game could intimidate guys who are playing for the first time. For us, it's about executing our skills and we're all professionals. It's been competitive for a while now, it's been a marquee event and it's an honor to be a part of such an event. (On Dhawan) He's gonna be in a plaster for a couple of weeks and then, we'll assess where he stands. Hopefully he heals quickly and should be available for the latter half of our league stages, and the semifinals as well.
