Weather may ruin clash of the titans

New Delhi: More than Yuvraj Singh battling it out with the likes of Virender Sehwag, rival sides Delhi and Punjab are concerned about the foggy conditions which may be the biggest impediment to an outright win in the 7th Group League Ranji Trophy game at the Roshanara on Sunday.

The poor visibility during the last week of December has always been a problem in Northern India and BCCI’s shoddy scheduling of matches added insult to the injury.

Delhi with 19 points from six games and Punjab with 17 from an equal number of outings are currently placed fourth and fifth respectively in group A. Only an outright win in this game would brighten their chances to make it to the quarter finals and the weather is likely to play spoilsport.

“We had requested the BCCI to schedule our matches in such a manner that the final few games during the last week of December are away matches. We wanted to play at home during the earlier phase,” a worried Chetan Chauhan told reporters.
