MANCHESTER – New Zealand will resume their innings on Wednesday on the score of 211/5 with 23 balls of their innings still remaining after rain halted the first semi-final on Tuesday.

New Zealand reached 211-5 off 46.1 overs before rain stopped play in their World Cup semi-final against India at Old Trafford.

Ross Taylor was 67 not out and Tom Latham three not out when persistent rain worsened sufficiently for the umpires to take the players off the field at 2:00 pm (1300 GMT).

New Zealand captain Kane Williamson had earlier made 67 after winning the toss, with Jasprit Bumrah (1-25 off eight overs) leading a disciplined India bowling attack.
