Better to Not Take Field When It’s Not Safe: Kohli on Wash Out

After India’s third match at the ICC World Cup was abandoned, captain Virat Kohli said it was a sensible decision to call off the match.

The World Cup game between India and New Zealand was abandoned due to rain without a ball in Nottingham on Thursday, June 13. The toss was delayed due to inclement weather and then never ended up happening.

"“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. " - Virat Kohli

“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,” he added.

New Zealand captain Kane Williamson said it was not an ideal situation but in a way a good chance for the players to get some rest.

"(It has) been about four days and we haven't seen the sun, so this doesn't surprise us. It's not ideal, but little bit of time off is also important. We have some break now midway through, so it's a good chance for the guys to freshen up and look forward to the next challenge," he said.
