Manchester, July 10: The rain interrupted India-New Zealand semi-final in the ICC World Cup 2019 at Old Trafford will begin on Wednesday (July 10) from where it had stopped on Tuesday (July 9).
New Zealand will resume their innings from 211 for 5 in 46.1 overs at 10:30 AM local time (3:00PM IST). But there are possible chances of rain interruptions on the reserve day as well and the Duckworth Lewis Stern (DLS) Method will once again come into play.
Here is what India's DLS target would be:
- If India get 46 overs, the target will be 237
- If India get 40 overs, the target will be 223
- If India get 35 overs, the target will be 209
- If India get 30 overs, the target will be 192
- If India get 25 overs, the target will be 172
- If India get 20 overs, the target will be 148
These numbers might change slightly as New Zealand will resume innings on Wednesday.
According to BBC, the weather prediction for the day says: "Mostly cloudy with a few bright patches throughout the day. Scattered showers expected but gradually turning more widespread and heavier in the late afternoon."
New Zealand will resume their innings at 10.30 AM local time but another passing shower is predicted around 12 PM with chances of rain around 51 per cent between 11 AM and 1 PM.
After 1 PM, there should not be any more rain but it will remain cloudy for the rest of the day till 5 PM in the evening, when rain might return again.
What if no play is possible on the Reserve Day?
If after the scheduled day and reserve day the semi-final match has still not reached a result, the higher-placed team from the CWC19 league stage will progress to the final. If there is no play possible on either the originally schedule day of the final, nor the Reserve Day, the World Cup will be shared by the two finalist teams.
