Rain has stopped play between India and New Zealand in the first semi-final of the Cricket World Cup.

The weather intervened when the Black Caps were batting on 211-5 in 46.1 overs, with Ross Taylor (67) and Tom Latham (3) at the crease. 

According to the Duckworth-Lewis method, 148 would be a revised target for a 20-over game, while for a 46-over match the target would be 237.

If the match can't be completed today it will resume on the reserve day, which is tomorrow (Wednesday).

New Zealand captain Kane Williamson had earlier made 67 (95 balls) after winning the toss and opting to bat, with Jasprit Bumrah (1-25 off eight overs) leading a disciplined Indian bowling attack.
