In the crucial World Cup semi-finals encounter today New Zealand won the toss and elected to bat but India bowled well thanks to the decisive spells from Jasprit Bumrah and Ravindra Jadeja who each took two wickets. At the time of this writing, India was well placed with New Zeland tottering at 211 for 5 in 46.1 overs when rain intervened disappointing fans. Now if the downpour continues the World Cup rules have been framed specially for the semis.

If rain does not stop at all today then it will begin at the point where it ended today on the reserve day tomorrow. If tomorrow is also rained off then whichever team has more points in the league stage will go through (India). If play resumes and NZ lose overs then India have to get 237 runs in 40 over according to Duckworth Lewis system and in case if it becomes a 20 overs match then India's target will be 148 runs.

If the finals is also affected by rain (as there is rain forecasted) and continue on the reserve day as well the two finalist teams will share the World Cup 2019.
