It was raining since morning. Rain played hide and seek with the fans and the players. The covers kept coming on and off for seven to eight times in the game.

But alas after several inspections by the umpires, the game was finally called off. Kedar Jadhav Asks the Rain Gods to Pour in Drought-Ridden Maharashtra, As the CWC 2019 Game Between IND& NZ Gets Called Off (Watch Video).
