The next match of India is with Pakistan on June 16 i.e Sunday and we really wish the weather to be fair.
This was India’s first match against the Black Caps in the World Cup campaign. Prior to India vs New Zealand match, earlier three World Cup matches have been canceled due to rain. This is indeed a record in the history of the 50-over match. ICC said that they do not have any reserves days this year in the World Cup but earlier there used to be.
