Visakhapatnam: Bad weather wreaked havoc in the first Twenty20 international between India and New Zealand in Visakhapatnam on Saturday. The match was called off after heavy rains persisted in.
The covers were all that hogged the limelight in the stadium, with heavy rain lashing the southern coastal town since late afternoon.
The two-match series, a build-up for the World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka later this month, marks Indian batsman Yuvraj Singh's return to big-time cricket after being treated for germ-cell cancer between his lungs in March-April. He will now have to wait another couple of days before taking to the field in Indian colours.
