The anticipated clash between India and New Zealand has been delayed due to rain. Covers were off the ground a few minutes before toss time, but nearing 2.30, rain started pouring down, leading to covers back on the ground. 

The weather remains damp and overcast, which means that the ground is unlikely to dry up early as well. The conditions, hence, are well suited for New Zealand bowlers to make a mark. The Indians struggle in overcast conditions when the ball is swinging, as we saw in the warm-up game between the two countries that New Zealand won. 

Trent Boult was the wrecker in chief as he sent the top orer packing in that match, and a similar fate might await today as well.
