Rain on Sunday forced the cancellation of the second one-day international between New Zealand’s and India. The match was being played in Hamilton at the time. After being given the opportunity to bat first, India reached 89 for one before the game was called off with Shubman Gill on 45 and Suryakumar Yadav on 34.
After a first weather delay that halted play for nearly four hours when India was on a score of 22-0 after 4.5 overs, the match was reduced to a 29-over format before it resumed.
When play was restarted, an additional eight overs were bowled before the rain forced the players to retreat once more to the pavilion and prevented any further action from taking place.
After taking the first game of the series on Friday in Auckland by a score of seven wickets, New Zealand’s now holds a 1-0 lead in the three-game series.
On Wednesday, the championship game will be played in Christchurch.
