Rain Break Will Help India In Semi-Final, Says Monty Panesar
New Delhi: After a rain break in the world cup 2019 Semi-final between India and Newzealand, India might get an advantage when they return to play on reserve day.
Says Monty Panesar, Former England left-arm spinner. The rain break would definitely help India and India will likely look to restrict Newzealand to a below-par total when they play against each other on the reserve day in Manchester, added the 37-year-old, who played 26 One-day Internationals for England.
India can easily chase a target of anything below 250 runs and they did tremendously well before the rain. India just have to make sure not to chase anything beyond 250 runs, if the ball does swing today. Panesar added that there is no need to play risky shots and India should play a measurable Cricket.
Today's match really depends on the weather conditions, Newzealand bowlers could be favoured if there is a lot of rain. Panesar made his Test debut against India in 2006 in Nagpur. The last match he played for England side against Australia in the 2013-14 ashes.
