HIGHLIGHTS

  • 18:23 (IST)

    WICKET! Colin de Grandhomme has to depart here, it was the slower ball from Bhuvneshwar Kumar here and de Grandhomme looks to play it towards third man. But he is deceived by the slowness of the delivery, gets an outside edge and an easy catch for Dhoni. New Zealand are 200/5

  • 18:14 (IST)

    50! Taylor completes his half-century in some style, gets down on one knee and just swathes it towards leg-side for a six. This is his 50th half-century, just incredible from the Kiwi veteran here. He needs to finish big here.

  • 18:12 (IST)

    KARTHIK LAKSHMANAN PINGS FROM MANCHESTER: Drizzling at the ground now. There are heavy clouds approaching from the stands to the left of the pavilion.

22:54 (IST)

Well, the final word coming is that play has been suspended for today and it will resume tomorrow at 3 PM IST, we will continue from where we'd left!

22:40 (IST)

KARTHIK FROM MANCHESTER PINGS: Not raining. Umpires are out. Covers removed. Decision soon.

22:24 (IST)

Well, you can go back to sleep, the rain has returned in Manchester! The covers are coming back onto the field and that might finally be it for the day, still waiting for official confirmation though

22:20 (IST)

UPDATE FROM MANCHESTER: Pitch covers are coming off, Play can resume latest by 18.36 local time, for a 20 over match. Target for India in that case will be 148.

22:00 (IST)

KARTHIK LAKSHMANAN FROM MANCHESTER TELLS US: Rain has stopped. Dinesh Karthik and R Sridhar have come out for a stroll. Groundsmen begin action too - supersopper doing rounds. Groundsmen are removing the covers. Seems like they're giving it one final shot today.

21:33 (IST)

Well, the update is that it is still raining quite heavily. Looking highly unlikely that we will get any play today, will atleast take one hour for ground to be made fit to play

21:20 (IST)
Well, that means 10 minutes more!
21:03 (IST)

Well, you can forget the previous update for now! The rain has started to get heavy and looks like we are still some time away from a restart here!

20:54 (IST)

Some good news coming in from Manchester,where the sun is out but its still drizzling. The worst though could be behind us and we might actually get a full game here

20:51 (IST)
Though we are still quite far from it, here is all you need to know about reserve days!
20:31 (IST)

KARTHIK LAKSHMANAN TELLS US: Still raining but there are signs of clearing up. 

Reduction of overs is up to the match referee. As of now,  overs won't be lost till 4.31 pm (2 hours from stoppage which was 2.01 pm + 30 minutes for lunch). After that,  it's the match referee's discretion. 

If referee announces a change in overs/target,  and game starts, and then it rains again to stop game completely for the day - reserve day will resume with revised conditions. 

However,  if not a single ball is bowled after referee announces revised conditions, match will resume from current position tomorrow.

20:13 (IST)
Well..
20:04 (IST)

KARTHIK LAKSHMANAN FROM MANCHESTER TELLS US: The rain has reduced slightly here, but the covers are still on here at Manchester and conditions look cloudy.

19:55 (IST)
Now then,this looks like bad news for today!
19:49 (IST)

Still raining quite heavily in Manchester. The shorter the game, the stiffer the run-rate India will have to achieve. If it is a 20 over game now, the target would be 148. If, however, it becomes a 46 over game and India bat 20 overs, the target then will actually be just about 60-70 for no loss.

19:36 (IST)
Some autographs being signed for fans!
19:30 (IST)
What do you think?!
19:19 (IST)

They have a buffer of 2 hours. Up to the match referee to decide how to view the situation. All efforts will be taken to get a result today. Reserve day will come into effect only if they can't get a result today (20 overs in second innings) Reserve day will be a continuation of the game,  not a complete restart.

19:12 (IST)

In case New Zealand doesn't bat again, India's target in 46 overs will be 237 40 overs will be 223 35 overs will be 209 30 overs will be 192 25 overs will be 172 20 overs will be 148

19:02 (IST)

Some bad news coming in from the ground, its continuing to rain heavily at the moment. The forecast has also changed with a rain warning coming on BBC!

18:54 (IST)
Even as we wait for more updates, do take a look at this!
18:40 (IST)

KARTHIK LAKSHMANAN FROM MANCHESTER: It's a steady shower, slightly heavy actually. Lots of clouds around too. They've covered pitch and square.

18:33 (IST)

RAIN! It had been drizzling for quite some time but now it has only increased and become more steady, umpires finally decide to come off here. New Zealand are 211/5 after 46.1 overs here..

18:30 (IST)

Some really ordinary fielding allows New Zealand to pick three runs there, twice no one was backing up there and that helps Kiwis pick some overthrow runs. New Zealand are currently 209/5 after 46 overs here.

18:23 (IST)

WICKET! Colin de Grandhomme has to depart here, it was the slower ball from Bhuvneshwar Kumar here and de Grandhomme looks to play it towards third man. But he is deceived by the slowness of the delivery, gets an outside edge and an easy catch for Dhoni. New Zealand are 200/5

18:21 (IST)

SAVED! Ross Taylor takes a perfect review here, he is given lbw here after looking to play a sweep off Bhuvneshwar! Not the smartest of choices, struck in front and umpire raises his finger. Taylor reviews and replays show that he was struck outside the line of the ball. Taylor survives!

18:17 (IST)

Finally a big over for New Zealand here, Taylor goes after Chahal and gets a six followed by a boundary. After that de Grandhomme finishes the over with a boundary. Fantastic batting this and New Zealand are now 197/4 after 44 overs

18:14 (IST)

50! Taylor completes his half-century in some style, gets down on one knee and just swathes it towards leg-side for a six. This is his 50th half-century, just incredible from the Kiwi veteran here. He needs to finish big here.

18:12 (IST)

KARTHIK LAKSHMANAN PINGS FROM MANCHESTER: Drizzling at the ground now. There are heavy clouds approaching from the stands to the left of the pavilion.

18:09 (IST)

Taylor's struggles continue on this pitch here, he is struggling to get the ball away as well as he'd like to. Colin de Grandhomme has come out to join Taylor,can he get the Kiwis going here. They are 170/4 after 42 overs

India vs New Zealand (IND vs NZ), ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 ODI 1st Semi-final at Manchester Latest Updates: Still raining but there are signs of clearing up. Reduction of overs is up to the match referee. As of now, overs won't be lost till 4.31 pm (2 hours from stoppage which was 2.01 pm + 30 minutes for lunch). After that, it's the match referee's discretion. If referee announces a change in overs/target, and game starts, and then it rains again to stop game completely for the day - reserve day will resume with revised conditions. However, if not a single ball is bowled after referee announces revised conditions, match will resume from current position tomorrow.

PREVIEW: Considered flat track bullies, the Indians have so far been tested only once in the ongoing World Cup in England and that was during their opening warm-up game against New Zealand in London on May 25. While the group stage encounter between the two teams got washed off, they are set to clash again and this time it will be the semi-final of the 2019 edition of the showpiece event at Old Trafford on Tuesday. Going into the tournament, the Indians were considered favourites while the Kiwis flew under the radar to start with. But as it has been the case with New Zealand when it comes to any limited-overs tournament, this time too, they have shown their mettle and walked straight into the knockouts at the fourth spot. In fact, at one stage they were leading the pack before a couple of bad games towards the end of the group stages saw them fall down the ladder slightly. But on Tuesday, the Black Caps will have to play out of their guts to challenge the Indian team that has only lost one game so far -- against England in Birmingham as they failed to chase down 300-plus. Yet, the question is whether or not it will be a batting paradise. After all, the ICC has refrained from producing belters and like CEO Dave Richardson said during the game between India and England in the group stages, the idea is to bring in balance.

Yet, there is forecast of rain starting Tuesday. While it may be passing showers, but then, the New Zealand attack suddenly looks all the more menacing with the likes of Boult, Lockie Ferguson, Tim Souther and Colin de Grandhomme almost looking unplayable. In fact, Ferguson's fitness will hold the key. While the Kiwis are confident that he will last the 50 overs, it will indeed be crucial to see if he remains the force to reckon with on the field of play. Skipper Kane Williamson has made no bones about the fact that he relies on Ferguson when it comes to bowling out the opposition. For Virat Kohli, it will be about wanting to see the clear blue skies like never before. After all, New Zealand is one attack that turns a completely different picture when the conditions are overcast. Unlike the Australians and Englishmen, the Kiwis are hardcore swing bowlers. Another area of concern for the Indian skipper will be the form of the middle-order batsmen. While the team management has shown a brave face, the fact remains that most of the runs have been scored by the top three -- Kohli, Rohit Sharma and K.L. Rahul.

With 647 runs from eight innings with five centuries Rohit heads the list and is followed by run-machine and Kohli with 442 runs with five fifties to his name. And third on the list is Rahul with 360 runs that includes a century and two fifties. Interestingly, the next man on the list is none other than โ€˜under scanner' M.S. Dhoni with 223 runs. Clearly, the writing is on the wall and a massacre is waiting to happen, but the Indians feel otherwise. Clearly, even as the Indian bowling attack under Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and the spinners cuts a perfect picture, the batting in the middle needs to stand tall and get counted. While the management stuck with Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja for the last game -- against Sri Lanka -- and dropped Yuzvendra Chahal, it will be interesting to see if they continue to do that or go back to having Chahal in the XI. But a lot will definitely depend on the wicket on offer and the conditions overhead. If the cloud covers comes in, the Indians might want to play just one spinner and cement the batting further by getting someone like Mayank Agarwal into the scheme of things.

Squads: India: Rohit Sharma, K.L. Rahul, Virat Kohli, Mayank Agarwal, M.S. Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Ravindra Jadeja, Dinesh Karthik, Mohammed Shami, Rishabh Pant.

New Zealand: Martin Guptill, Henry Nicholls, Kane Williamson, Ross Taylor, Tom Latham, Colin de Grandhomme, James Neesham, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Matt Henry, Trent Boult, Colin Munro, Tom Blundell, Ish Sodhi, Lockie Ferguson.
