India were 89 for 1 in 12.5 overs when rain stopped play for the second time at the beautiful Seddon Park. The elegant Shubman Gill and the marauding Suryakumar Yadav entertained the crowd with some glorious strokes before rain halted play.

The match was reduced to 29-overs-a-side as the first interruption caused a four-hour break. India were 22 for no loss in the fifth over at that time.
After resumption, the visitors lost their skipper Shikhar Dhawan (3 off 10 balls) trying to up the ante.
But Gill (45 not out) and Surya (34 not out) added 66 runs in under eight overs before the heavens opened up once again.
