It sounds weird to hear, but during the first ODI International match on Wednesday in Napier between India and New Zealand, the game had to be stopped due to the sun after dinner. In McLean Park, the sunlight was falling on the eyes of straight batsmen, which made it difficult for him to see the ball. Due to this the game had to be stopped. Never before did this happen in international cricket.
On-field umpire Shaun George said that the decision to stop the game was taken keeping in mind the safety of the players. The umpire said, "The sunlight of the sun was falling on the eyes of the players and we had to think about the security of them and the umpires. Players also knew about it.
Due to the sun in Teeth, the game has been stopped during domestic competitions. This has happened on some grounds of England, but none of these was an international match.
New Zealand's star batsman Ross Taylor said, "We talked about this before the series. This is something different. 'Generally cricket pitches are created in the north-south direction to avoid such a situation, but McClean Park's pitch is towards the East-West.
