India, New Zealand share spoils after another washout
The India-New Zealand match was abandoned here on Thursday without a bowl being bowled – the fourth such instance in this World Cup – with both teams sharing a point each.
Rain had been forecast for this game and repeated inspections of the ground afterwards did not bear any fruit.
The no result meant New Zealand (7 points) stay on top while India (5 points) edge ahead of England (4 points) to the third spot with Australia (6 points) staying second.
The Kiwis are yet to lose a game with three wins before this, while Virat Kohli and Co. have beaten South Africa and Australia to start their campaign on a high.
