HAMILTON: The second One-day International between India and New Zealand was abandoned due to persistent rain here on Sunday.

New Zealand inserted India to bat after winning the toss but only 12.5 overs could be possible as twice the game had to be stopped due to rain.

The game could not resume after the second rain-forced break when India were 89 for one in 12.5 overs.

India lost Shikhar Dhawan (3) before Shubman Gill (45) and Suryakumar Yadav (34) added 66 runs for the second wicket.

Rain first stopped play when India were 22 for no loss.

New Zealand leads the series 1-0 winning the first match by chasing down 306 with almost 3 overs to spare, thanks to Tom Latham's unbeaten 145.

The final match of the series will be played on Wednesday in Christchurch.
