Beaten in Mohali, Eng wary of Dharamsala

Beaten comprehensively by India by five wickets in the fourth one-day International (ODI) on Wednesday, England are now wary of the conditions in Dharamsala in Himachal Pradesh where the last game of the five-match series will be played Jan 27.

Having already lost the series 3-1, England captain Alastair Cook said that the partnership between Indian batsmen Rohit Sharma and Suresh Raina, scoring 68 runs for the fourth wicket, Wednesday saw the game here slip away from England.

As the England side head for the last game of the series in the hill station of Dharamsala, 250 km from here, the visitors are wary of the cold conditions there. “I am not quite sure how the conditions are going to be like in the next game,” he told media persons after the game here at the Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) stadium, adding that he had heard reports that Dharamsala had seen snow in recent days.

‘I was looking at the reports on my iPad which said it (weather) is clear,’ Cook said, even though he looked quite wary of what to expect at the next venue. ‘I hope people behind me are going to make the right decisions. We have to get in and out of that (place) safely,’ he added.
