Ind Vs. NZ: Rain Could Be An Uninvited Guest. Here’s What Can Happen If Match Gets Washed Out

India and New Zealand will go head to head in Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester for the first semi-final game of the world cup. Both the teams look confident in their perspective, India, on one hand, will be much motivated as they have been dominating the entire contest by topping the points table. New Zealand on the other hand, who have sneaked through the semifinals despite 3 continues losses, will definitely look to shift the focus in their semi-final challenge. However, as the fans all over the world would be waiting for this hectic game, rain could be an uninvited guest that is ready to ruin the moment.

Weather is expected to ruin the game

According to the weather forecast, the weather in Manchester is likely to be overcast, with cloudy skies through the day. There are predictions of showers on Tuesday which could wash away the spirit of the fans.


Previously, these two teams were unable to play the game in the round-robin contest due to rain. The showers washed away the game before the toss could have happened, giving away one point each to the teams. As for tomorrow’s semi-final game, there is no good news either.

A possible outcome

Possible risk of light and patchy rain persists in the morning. But, the rain will mostly skirt the north of Manchester. Conditions in the afternoon are likely to be drier.

If the match is washed out on the reserve day as well, India will qualify for the final on the basis of more points. The men in blue are with 15 points on the board and New Zealand is with 11 points in the league stage, the difference in the points will scrap Kiwi out of the tournament.
