New Zealand’s slow innings against India in the first World Cup semi-final at Old Trafford were interrupted by rain on Tuesday. The Black Caps were 211 for the loss of five wickets after 46 overs, when play was stopped.

It has been raining heavily in Manchester for the past half hour. If the rain does not permit the teams to continue today, the match will be resumed on a reserve day — which will be tomorrow — as per the rules of the International Cricket Council (ICC). The DLS method might come into play if the match is resumed today, in which case India’s target will be 148 in 20 overs.
