    Starts 730pm Thursday

    This should be a great game

    If the weather holds out, first loss for one of the sides coming up
    Which will mean either NZ or India will be the only undefeated side at the cup

    If Boult can produce his best and get the ball swinging back into the right hander I believe NZ can beat India.

    I know it was only a trial match but NZ did towel them up a couple of weeks ago.

    Dhawan out for two games will be a big blow. Kohli yet to set the house on fire.

    A battle of the bowlers, India's mob is probably the best all round attack, the kiwis in the right conditions can rout anyone.

    I'm tipping the blek keps due to the wet weather haunting England atm

    If there's movement about we're a huge show - Boult and co can be very dangerous, and our bats are more used to it... But Bumrah is the sort who tends to own us, and the Indians dominated us in NZ without him... man-for-man nobody compares well with them at the moment, we have to play well to be close...

    damp and muddy field in parts, light rain as well

    Pistol said they will keep on inspecting, but its cold and not conclusive to drying
    Wont be any play any time soon

    looks grim tbh

    I always think it’s pretty crazy that 2 straight days of rain can potentially make an entire World Cup meaningless... and by that I mean if they rain out the 2 days allotted for the final you end up with co champions... which kinda sucks...

    Even at the last cup.... they had the final at the MCG... I thought if it rained on the first day and it looked like doing the same on the 2nd day... why not move it to Marvel Stadium... but apparently that wasn’t even an option... I think that’s nuts...

    Shame about the rain. This would have been a good game I think. Also was a chance to gauge where NZ stand in this comp.

    No wonder so many of the Poms move here with Summers like that.

    So much for the “every team plays each other” concept.

    Although chances are 1 pt was a good outcome for us, I can't help but feel given our build up (which was non-existent prior to a couple of warm ups in the UK) we needed a game against that side to see where we are at...
