Hamilton. The second ODI cricket match between India and New Zealand being played here in Hamilton on Sunday has been called off due to rain. The match was stopped for four hours due to rain, after which the 50-over match was reduced to 29 overs, leaving cricket fans disappointed.
When India scored 22 runs without losing a wicket in 4.5 overs, the game had to be stopped due to rain. Depending on the playing conditions, there will be a 10-minute break between the two innings and no drinks break will be taken. It is very important for India to win this match to return to this series. The Indian team has come out to bat first. Captain Shikhar Dhawan and Shubman Gill opened for India. Both had a good partnership in the previous match as well. The fans expected that both would make a great partnership in this match too, but it could not happen. Captain Shikhar Dhawan got out after scoring three runs. Matt Henry got him caught out by Lockie Ferguson. India’s first wicket has fallen for 23 runs.
