Ind vs NZ abandoned because of rain

Thursday, 13 June 2019

Cricket fans endured more frustration on Thursday as India and New Zealand's World Cup match was abandoned without a ball being bowled.

Both teams were hoping to extend their 100 per cent winning record in the competition, but regular showers and a wet outfield at Trent Bridge prevented any play.

The abandonment is the fourth in this World Cup.

The previous highest number of abandoned games in a World Cup was two, in 1992 and 2003.
