Reportedly india takes on new zealand at Manchester on Tuesday and the local MET department has predicted a cloudy day with the likelihood of light showers. Furthermore the only match featuring the Indian team which got washed out was its encounter with new zealand n the league stage. Meanwhile unlike the league stage, the semi finals and finals have a reserve day. The teams will then meet on Wednesday for a semi-final clash.
Hence this brings us to the next question what happens if it rains on Wednesday as well washing out the match? india will then qualify automatically for the final on the basis of points in the league stage. Presently india tops the points table with 15 points while new zealand has 11 from the league stage.
Further what can alter the outcome of the india-New Zealand tie is a reduced over match with Duckworth-Lewis System (DLS) coming into play. Moreover if rain interrupts play and both teams don't get to play their full quota of 50 overs, they would have to get to a result in the time available after play resumes. Perhaps the target score is then calculated and adjusted accordingly with a reduction in overs and the DLS is not always a system which would work to the advantage of the better side and even if india has a better record in the league stage, if could get knocked out on account of the DLS method.
