Black Caps sit out first T20 due to rain

8:39 am on 9 September 2012

The first Twenty20 cricket game between India and New Zealand was washed out overnight without a ball being bowled at Vishakhapatnam.

Heavy rain lashing the southern coastal town meant no play in game one of the two-match series.

The second game takes place in Chennai on Tuesday.

The series is a build-up for the World Twenty20 which opens in Sri Lanka on September 18h.
