India and New Zealand are scheduled to take on each other in a T20I game on Sunday. This is the second T20I in the three-match T20I series. The first match was abandoned due to rain and it appears that the second game could also be washed out. Mount Maunganui will host the second T20I between the nations. On that note, here, we take a look at how Twitter reacted as rain threatens the second T20I between India and New Zealand.
The second T20I between India and New Zealand could also be washed out
Rain has been a constant presence in cricket games in the recent months. A lot of games in the recent T20 World Cup were also affected by rain. While it increased the dynamics of the competitions, teams such as Australia and South Africa were indirectly affected by the same.
The first game between India and New Zealand was also a washout. Hence, there are a lot of expectations from the upcoming encounter. India is embarking on a new era in T20 cricket. After the failure in the 2022 T20 WC, there is desperation to do well and hence, a lot of new players have to be tried out. Cricketers such as Sanju Samson and Umran Malik deserve more chances while Hardik Pandya‘s captaincy must also be experimented with. All of this is possible only if the game happens as per plan.
Twitter reacts to the reports of rainfall on Sunday in New Zealand
Meanwhile, fans are frustrated that rain is hampering the entertainment of a cricket game very often. It is high time that the ICC and the boards take a call regarding this. There are a few stadiums with a roof covering available but not in all the nations. It would take time but it is necessary to remove rain as a factor for a cricket game in the future.
Rain predicted during the 2nd T20 between India vs New Zealand tomorrow.
