Wellington: India were 151/3 in 24 overs when rain halted play during the second ODI against New Zealand. The match has already been reduced to 44 overs per side. Indin cricket captain Dhoni and Goutam Gambhir were on the crease when Rain frustrated Indian innings.Gambhir is battin on 28 and Dhoni on 2.

India got off to a flier after winning the toss in the second One-Day International against New Zealand, racing to 130 one in 19 overs when rain first stopped the game.

Sehwag raised his 35th ODI fifty which was his third against the hosts in 32 balls with the help of nine 4s and one 6. After firing all cylinders with the bat, Sehwag lost his wicket to Ian Butler for 54 runs.

Tendulkar reached 64 before he was undone by captain fantastic Daniel Vettori, who caught the master batsman full on length and plum in front of the bails to take out the danger man on a lbw decision.

The touring side have now moved to three wickets for 151 after 24 overs.

India retained the team that won the first of the five-match series at Napier Tuesday by 53 runs, while New Zealand were forced to make one change, bringing in wicketkeeper Peter McGlashan for injured Brendon McCullum who is playing as batsman.
