NZ must have a game plan...to bore India into submission.
Guptill has been very disappointing in this world cup.

Still under 4 runs per over after 32.

Surely the pitch conditions aren't that difficult

Beyond pathetic. They should have entered the field behind a white flag.

Are the semi-finals able to run into a second day in the event of bad weather, and under what circumstances?
This from BBC about todayís game explains:
There is a reserve day but they will do all they can to get the match in today - India's innings needs to be at least 20 overs to constitute a game.

If no more play is possible today, they would restart tomorrow from the point we left off at (NZ 211-5 off 46.1 overs) and play the full 50 overs per side.

However, if India start a 20-over chase tonight and the rain returns, they would resume from that point tomorrow and only have 20 overs maximum. I.e. if India face one over before rain intervenes, they would resume tomorrow with 19 overs left to make their target.

Iím not sure what the perfect solution is, but picking up where you left off the doesnít seem entirely fair.

What if itís bright sunshine tomorrow? India have a huge advantage.
