India vs New Zealand: No rain, but fog halts play; The game hangs in the balance – Magazine Creations

In the first such match interruption, the 2023 ODI World Cup match between India and New Zealand in Dharamshala in Himachal Pradesh on October 22 was briefly halted due to dense fog.

The atmosphere became so foggy that players from both teams were struggling to keep their eyes on the balls. In such circumstances, the referees decided to temporarily stop the match until the situation improved.

The match remained balanced, with India not playing at least 20 overs which could allow the winner to be decided by D/L method.

Analysts said that the match was tilted in favor of India, as the team was scoring goals strongly. At the time the match was stopped, India were at 100/2 in 15.2 overs.

In pursuit of the target of 274, India is well short of the required run rate of 5.5. However, experts said losing a few wickets in quick succession could turn things around in New Zealand’s favour.

Earlier, the Kiwis were put in to bat first, managing to score 273 runs in their 50 overs, with Daryl Mitchell impressing with a knock of 130 runs off 127 balls. Rasheen Ravindra was the second highest run bowler, scoring 75 runs off 87 balls.

Among the bowlers, Mohammed Shami was the standout performer, taking five wickets for 54 runs in his 10-over spell. Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj conceded 45 each and took a wicket each.
