The 1st semi-final of the World Cup 2019 between India and New Zealand had to be moved into the reserve day after persistent rain didn't allow any further play from happening on Tuesday after 46.1 overs of New Zealand's batting innings. The Black Caps had scored 211/5 when players were forced off the field as covers came onto the pitch.

This is the first instance ever in World Cup history that a knock-out match has been forced to move into the reserve day. In the 1979 edition, a number of matches were played on reserve days due to rain but none of them were knockout games. The only ICC tournament knock-out game that was required to be played on a reserve day remains the final of the 2002 Champions Trophy when finalists India and Sri Lanka had to share the trophy after rain didn't allow the match to be completed even on the extra day.
