More Rain Mars Second ODI

Wellington, March 6 NZPA - Rain has returned to disrupt the second one-day cricket international between New Zealand and India at Westpac Stadium here today with only five overs possible before the covers were summoned a second time.

Play was initially thwarted for 65 minutes and drizzle swept the ground shortly after the players returned.

India lost ground in the interim, sliding f rom 130 for one to 151 for three at the end of the 24th over.

Sachin Tendulkar had added just two after the resumption when New Zealand captain Daniel Vettori removed him plumb leg before wicket for 61.

Six balls later Yuvraj Singh was snapped up at slip by Ross Taylor for a four-ball duck to give Kyle Mills some overdue joy.

Earlier Mills was spelled after his first three overs cost 25 as Virender Sehwag (54 from 36) predictably cut loose.

Gautam Gambhir (28) and captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni (2) were the not out batsmen.

The first delay trimmed the contest to 44 overs a side and now more overs will be lost.

India won the rain-affected series opener by 53 runs in Napier on Tuesday.
