  1. Farewell

    Well I've never covered a two-day international before, so there's that.

    And while you may be frustrated by the rain, think of this as bonus cricket - you'd have been lost without a World Cup match tomorrow.

    Join us from 10:00 BST for live coverage of the rest of this semi-final between India and New Zealand at Old Trafford.

    Amy Lofthouse has the report of day one here.

    The scorecard is here.

    And Liam Plunkett looks ahead to England's semi-final against Australia on Thursday here.

    See you tomorrow. Have a good one.

    It was a very ponderous innings from New Zealand on an admittedly tricky, two-paced pitch.

    How will it play tomorrow? The Black Caps will have to blast as many runs as possible off 23 balls to start and then hope the pitch remains helpful for their bowlers when India chase.

    Ex-New Zealand captain on BBC Test Match Special

    New Zealand didn't play that well today.

    It has been a slightly flawed campaign. They had to use their whole squad when they had the first few games going OK.

    They needed to introduce some components.

    They kept players out of it for too long so when it came to the pointy end of the tournament they didn't have other people to select. They have too many people out of form.

    Here are the five New Zealand wickets that did fall before the rain...

    India would prefer coming back tomorrow rather than having a truncated 20-over game tonight.

    SMS Message: It is advantage NZ. There would be lot of moisture on the wicket as well as overcast conditions are forecasted for tomorrow. It is perfect setting for Trent Boult. India would have in the back of their mind the practice match (which looks like ages ago now) which was played under similar conditions. from Pallav Shah, Cambridge

    Who is the happier team here?

    India would really not have wanted to try and chase 148 off 20 overs in these conditions this evening.

  8. Info on tickets

    • Fans are advised that their tickets are valid for the Reserve Day. They should keep hold of their ticket from today as they will require them to enter the stadium tomorrow
    • Fans are not able to sell their tickets for the Reserve Day if they cannot attend, due to the short turnaround time
    • Fans who cannot attend the Reserve Day are able to donate their tickets as they leave Old Trafford today to give free of charge to local cricket communities. Once fans have donated their ticket, they are unable to attend

    So just the four hours and 21 minutes since the players left the field, play is finally called off for today.

    New Zealand will (weather depending) resume on 211-5 after 46.1 overs at 10:30 BST tomorrow and have 3.5 overs to add as much to that score as they can.

    India will then have 50 overs to chase whatever the Kiwis set.

    If rain interrupts play again, Duckworth-Lewis-Stern can be used to give India a revised target - they need to bat at least 20 overs to constitute a full match.

    If tomorrow is rained off, India go through to the final, having finished higher than New Zealand in the group stage.

  10. BreakingPlay called off for today

    No surprise, unfortunately.

    We'll be back tomorrow to finish this match off.

    Uh oh. The umpires are going to different dressing rooms. This looks like it's off for the day.

  12. Post update

    The umpires have left the field...

    Ugh. All the covers are coming back on now.

    This should be it.

    We are none the wiser when we are in the dressing room as players.

  15. Post update

    And now those covers are coming back on.

    *Endless screaming*

  16. Post update

    The covers are being removed from the bowlers' run ups...

    The rope is being dragged round the outfield to soak up some water.

  17. Post update

    Here come the umpires...

    #HoverCoverUpdate - it's off again. This is torturous.

  19. Post update

    Not all the tarpaulins have been reapplied to the ground, just those that cover the bowlers' run-ups.

    We'll see - 10 minutes until the final inspection.
