But if a 20 overs per side match cannot be completed on Wednesday as well, India would reach the final owing to their better finish in the 10-team group stage.
In the match, Ross Taylor was 67 not out and Tom Latham three not out when persistent rain worsened sufficiently for the umpires to take the players off the field at 2:00pm (1300 GMT) with 23 balls of the scheduled 50 overs in the innings left.
New Zealand captain Kane Williamson had earlier made 67.
India's pacer Jasprit Bumrah led a disciplined bowling attack as in his eight overs, he took 1 wicket and gave 25 runs.
If a game is unable to be completed today then play will resume tomorrow
