The semifinal match between India and New Zealand is now a Two Day International match. Initially, New Zealand won the toss and batted first in the overcast conditions. But there were unsuccessful in putting up a big score on the board in the greatest event. New Zealand managed to score 211 for five after 46.1 overs. After that, rain interfered the game and forced the players to move off the field. New Zealand will resume their innings on the Reserve day, that is on Wednesday.
What is Reserve Day?
Many people were confused about the reserve day rule from ICC, assuming it to be a restart game. In fact, the rule will be a continuation of the game, not a restart. The score from the original match day will be carried through to the reserve day. It means Bhuvneshwar will bowl to Taylor, first ball today, which will be over number 46.2. If all goes well then the first semi-final will be the 50-overs game.
What if the reserve day is washed out?
However, the weather forecast has predicted the same conditions on Wednesday, which we saw on Tuesday. Light rain is expected in the morning, followed by partly cloudy weather throughout the day. Rain is expected to return to Old Trafford, Manchester at different intervals during noon and then in the evening. If no result is possible in the reserve day as well, then undoubtedly India will go through the final because they stand tall in the points table.
What if the final is also washed out?
If the above scenario happens, Australia or England will meet India in the final for the grandest trophy of cricket at Lord’s. If the rain disrupts the game, then there is a reserve day in the final as well. However, if even the reserve day is washed out having no final results, then the title will be shared by the two finalists.

If match can be continued tomorrow then how can it be called ONE DAY International? #rainstopsmatch

Totally unfair for a great event like #CWC19 to resume Play from where we left. Pitch condition really matters, donno how they're taking decision like this! #CWC2019 #RainStopsMatch #INDvNZ #indiavsNewzealand2019

No force is stronger than the force of nature. #Rain has proved to be too mighty once again. Sadly, play has been called off due to the unstoppable rains here in #OldTrafford, Manchester.
