The frustrating English weather finally caught up with the Indian team as their third World Cup game against New Zealand was called off without a ball being bowled here Thursday.
New Zealand have seven points from four games while India now have five from three with the next game against Pakistan in Manchester on Sunday.
This was the fourth such game in the ongoing tournament that has not yielded any result, something that will certainly increase ICC's worry.
While both the teams share a point each, the practical difficulties of not having a reserve day as stated by the ICC CEO David Richardson is certainly leaving the fans, especially the Indians high and dry.
Despite rain playing spoilsport, Indian fans turned out in large numbers. The umpires had one last inspection at 7:30 PM IST before taking the decision to abandon the match.
Indian captain Virat Kohli said it was a sensible decision to call off the match. "Sensible decision to not play, given the outfield wasn't fully fit (sic). One point not a bad thing for sides that have won all their games so far. So we'll take it," he said.
