Rain interrupts play in second ODI against New Zealand with India on 22-0 after 4.5 overs

India were 22 for no loss in 4.5 overs against New Zealand when rain stopped play in the second One-Day International at Seddon Park here on Sunday. Shubhman Gill was batting on 19 and giving him company was skipper Shikhar Dhawan (2) when skies opened up.

New Zealand captain Kane Williamson won the toss and opted to bowl against India. Victory for New Zealand will catapult the hosts to the top of the World Cup Super League standings while India must win to keep the series alive.

The Black Caps convincingly won the opening match on Friday by seven wickets led by a batting masterclass from Tom Latham who belted his way to 145 off only 104 deliveries. It was New Zealand’s 13th consecutive ODI victory on home soil.

New Zealand have made one change with Michael Bracewell in for Adam Milne while India have brought in Deepak Chahar and Deepak Hooda for Shardul Thakur and Sanju Samson.
