This World Cup has already proven to be the most rain-effected edition in history, resulting in three washouts already - two in a row, in the second week of the tournament - and Nottingham threatens to add one more to the hit-list of England's inclement weather. "A Yellow Warning for rain is in force in the Nottingham area for most of this week", the Nottingham Post reported.

BCCI call in cover for injured Shikhar Dhawan
Rahul will now be the opening partner of Rohit Sharma with Dinesh Karthick and Vijay Shankar bolstering up the middle order. He had been hit on his left thumb during India's match against defending champions Australia at The Oval on Sunday.

Dhawan suffered the injury as a result of a nasty blow from a rising delivery by Australia paceman Pat Cummins in the early phase of his innings but went on to complete his 17th one-day global century. This will be India's third match.

However, the Kiwis do own a victory against the Men in Blue in a warm up game heading into the tournament after superb spells from Trent Boult up top and James Neesham in the middle overs restricted them to a mere 179 runs - a total New Zealand chased down easily. New Zealand's Win % at this venue is just 28.57%.

However, for India, who have played and won two games, will it be a point gained or a point lost? "So it was a really good performance from us today".
