India vs New Zealand, Reserve Day: Men in Blue restricted the Kiwis at the score of 239/5 after the game resumed on the Reserve Day at Old Trafford, Manchester. Ross Taylor who was the set batsman on the crease couldn't be able to push the score and hence the wickets fell like cards on the reserve day as well. Bhuvneshwar Kumar took three wickets in the first innings while for New Zealand most runs were made by Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor.

The match has been so interesting so far as the weather forecast has predicted the rain on Wednesday, i.e. the Reserve Day as well. Virat Kohli and squad has to chase down the total of 240, which is neither easy nor difficult. New Zealand on the Reserve Day managed to score just 28 runs and hence their total was upgraded to 239 after 211 on Tuesday. 

Now, it will be interesting to see how Indian openers KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma will play the monstrous starting bowling spell of Trent Boult and Lockie Ferguson. Trent Boult in a warm-up match against India took five wicket-haul and defeated Indian team. But, its Hitman Rohit Sharma, who is disatrous form throughout the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. Rohit Sharma hammered five centuries in this World Cup edition and hence the victory seems easy if he clicks the ball.
