NZ v India 2nd ODI: Persistent rain forces early end to Hamilton ODI
Persistent rain forced the second ODI between New Zealand and India at the Seddon Park, Hamilton to be called off on Sunday.
The play started late after rain disrupted the start of the game. A delayed toss meant that New Zealand asked India to bat first.
When rain forced the first interruption after play started, India had reached 22 for no loss after 4.5 overs with openers Shubman Gill and captain Shikhar Dhawan at the crease.
After a fairly long wait, play started with the match being reduced to a 29 overs a side contest. Dhawan was dismissed by Matt Henry. India promoted Suryakumar Yadav up the order. Gill and Yadav added 66 runs for the second wicket when rain halted play, yet again.
India was at 89 for one in 12.5 overs when rain forced players to head indoors. After fairly long wait again, the match was called off. New Zealand lead the series 1-0, with the final game scheduled to be held at Christchurch on Wednesday.
