Mumbai: Fans and players were left frustrated as the clash between India and New Zealand was called off due to rain. The highly anticipated match was abandoned due to bad weather. The players were spotted looking at the sky with a glimmer of hope that the rain gods will show some mercy so that the game could have resumed. But the prayers went in vain.

Meanwhile, a video of Indian batsman Kedar Jadhav is going viral on social media in which he is seen pleading the rain gods to shift to drought-hit Maharashtra instead of pouring down in Nottingham and disrupting the game.
