Persistent rain in Nottingham delayed the start of the World Cup match between India and New Zealand on Thursday. But after the final inspection at 7:30 pm the umpires didn't find the conditions good enough for the play to start and decided to abandon the match, with both teams sharing a point each. The groundstaff at Trent Bridge were kept busy by the stop-start drizzle while the umpires carried out a number of inspections only for the rain to start again. Tournament organisers have faced criticism over their planning of the event after two washouts and one no result, forcing teams to share one point each. Bangladesh coach Steve Rhodes questioned why reserve days were not factored in after his side's fixture against Sri Lanka in Bristol was abandoned without a ball being bowled. International Cricket Council chief executive David Richardson said reserve days for every match would be "extremely complex to deliver". (SCORECARD)

    Current burst of rain is heaviest

    Given the conditions, the chances of a match starting from here on look very bleak as the current burst of the rain is the heaviest of all.
  • 18:12 (IST)Jun 13, 2019

    Spectators are leaving stadium

    This recent burst of rain has forced the spectators to give up on their patience and they leave the stadium disheartened.
  • 18:07 (IST)Jun 13, 2019

    Inspection delayed!

    Just moments before the scheduled inspection at 6:00 pm IST, it has started raining once again. The umbrellas are out in the stands and the spectators those who don't have them are looking for shelters as it is much stronger this time.
  • 17:59 (IST)Jun 13, 2019

    Inspection nearing!

    We are nearing the next inspection schedule which like the previous ones will most likely be pushed once again as rain continues to play with everybody's emotions. That said, we will have to wait for an official word and that is all we can do at the moment.
  • 17:47 (IST)Jun 13, 2019

    Important information!

    The cut-off time for a 20 over-per-side match is 8:45 pm IST which means the match needs to start before that or else we will have another washout in World Cup 2019.
  • 17:44 (IST)Jun 13, 2019

    Here is another update from none other than "The Turbanator" who, like many of us, also seems frustrated with rain playing hide and seek in Nottingham.
  • 17:24 (IST)Jun 13, 2019

    Lunch break!

    The players will have lunch at 5:30 pm IST, as rain continues to play the spoilsport and keeps them waiting. It means if the play starts we will have a comparatively shorter mid-innings break than normal.
  • 17:19 (IST)Jun 13, 2019

    Rain is back!

    The covers are back on as rain starts pouring once again at Trent Bridge, Nottingham. This time it is quite heavy as well.

    Inspection is on

    The two umpires are in the middle and they are inspecting the outfield by poking their umbrellas in wet patches. For the time being it is not raining but the outfield conditions are far from suitable for the play to start.
  • 16:56 (IST)Jun 13, 2019

    Covers are coming off!

    Rain has stopped for now and the covers are coming off but again it could change in no time and  we have seen it happen several times already.
  • 16:46 (IST)Jun 13, 2019

    Will we or won't we?

    Rain has gotten heavier and with that the wait continues...
  • 16:25 (IST)Jun 13, 2019

    The wait is never ending... it seems!

    Rain has returned once again and the covers are back on once again. We don't know how many times we have already written it and how many times we will have to write it, but sadly such has been the day. It is frustrating for the players, umpires, fans and worse for the groundstaff who are working tirelessly to drain the water but rain is ruining their efforts again and again.
  • 16:12 (IST)Jun 13, 2019

    Inspection at 5:00 pm IST

    Just in... As expected the umpires have decided to have a look at ground conditions once again at 5:00 pm IST.

    Next inspection at 4:00 pm IST

    The initial inspection scheduled for 2:30 pm IST has been pushed by an hour-and-half as it started raining in Nottingham. Next inspection will be at 4:00 pm IST.
  • 15:03 (IST)Jun 13, 2019

    Interesting stat!

    Given the conditions, no team would opt to bat after winning the toss. We will see if India will catch-up with the Black Caps or Kane Williamson's side will enhance their better run.
  • 14:56 (IST)Jun 13, 2019

    It's raining heavily!

    The rain has picked up intensity and the square wickets are also under covers.
  • 14:50 (IST)Jun 13, 2019
