Umpires Marais Erasmus (R) and Paul Reiffel walk out to conduct a pitch inspection ahead of the 2019 Cricket World Cup group stage match between India and New Zealand at Trent Bridge in Nottingham, central England, on June 13, 2019.

Rain played spoilsport yet again at the ICC World Cup 2019 as the highly anticipated clash between India and New Zealand was called off.

Both sides were unbeaten heading into the contest at Trent Bridge but the weather was forecast for rain throughout Thursday. While it was initially felt that a shortened game could be possible, the weather turned sour and the teams had to split the points.

There were varied reactions to the result, some serious and some poking fun at how the rain has reigned supreme once again this week.
