  • While the match was supposed to start at 3 pm, even the toss was not held at the time of publishing this story, due to rains.

The weather gods might have deprived fans of cricket action at Trent Bridge on Thursday, but the spectators were entertained nonetheless. Till the time the first ball in the India vs New Zealand encounter was bowled, there was Bollywood music, dance and even Dandiya that the viewers enjoyed in the rain.

While the match was supposed to start at 3 pm, even the toss was not held at the time of publishing this story, due to rains. Fans would definitely hope that there is some action at least and might even settle for a curtailed match.

The official handle of the Cricket World Cup shared pictures of the groundsmen doing their best to keep the water away and captioned the picture, "An update from @TrentBridge: the next inspection is at 11:30AM #INDvNZ #CWC19."

 The Twitter handle of the BCCI also shared the same update and also added, "Well, the rain has got heavier and the covers are on #CWC19."

They also shared another update that the next inspection is to be held at 11.30 am, which would be 4 pm according to Indian standard time.

The weather has been an issue in the tournament so far with the matches of Pakistan vs Sri Lanka and Sri Lanka vs Bangladesh, both being completely washed out.
