After today’s match being taken away by rain, New Zealand is staying on top of the point table with 7 points in 4 matches claiming three wins.

Meanwhile India taken away 5 points are reeling in third position with Australia in between two.

After everything is over for the time being, India skipper Virat Kohli has shared his disappointment but also said they are eagerly waiting to next assignment that is against Pakistan on June 16.

“Disappointing not to get any game time at all. From the players point of view and where the teams are placed, it was better suited not to take the field when it is not safe to play. Don’t want an injury at this stage.”

“We’ve been playing some good cricket, we’re not too worried about where we stand. Having two wins does give you confidence. A couple of practice sessions and we should be fine. It’s only about getting game time and that should happen on Sunday,” Virat Kohli said.
