India vs New Zealand, Twitter Reactions: Fans left dejected after rain forces World Cup semi-final into reserve day

The first 2019 World Cup semifinal will run into a second day after persistent rain prematurely ended play on Tuesday with New Zealand laboring to 211/5 against India at Old Trafford, with 3.5 overs still to bat in the innings.

Ross Taylor was unbeaten on 67 - the same score made by New Zealand captain Kane Williamson - and was starting to get on top of India's bowlers for the first time before forecasted showers arrived over the Manchester ground at 2 p.m. local time.

The rain lasted throughout the afternoon. The covers briefly came off the outfield at 5.30 p.m. and officials had an inspection, only for play to be abandoned for the day 50 minutes later.

The teams will return on Wednesday - the designated reserve day for the first semifinal - and the Black Caps will resume an innings that started very slowly and barely picked up pace after they won the toss.
