Set to play host to the penultimate one-dayer in the five-match India-England ODI series here today, Mohali and its surrounding were enveloped by a thick blanket of fog.
In the early morning, the weather was misty, but dense fog soon started descending reducing the visibility levels to around 200 metres, a MeT official said Chandigarh.
The PCA stadium, where the match starts in the afternoon, was covered by thick fog and the maximum temperature also came down and was hovering around 12-13 degrees Celsius at about 10 a.m. It had rained heavily in Mohali and adjoining places on Thursday and Friday, but the weather cleared up in the subsequent days, with plenty of sunshine.
Yesterday too, it was a bright, with the maximum temperature settling around 20 degrees Celsius. "We are still hoping that by afternoon the fog should lift and we should have a good game of cricket," a PCA official said.
Chandigarh's Meteorological Department Director Surinder Paul said that foggy conditions would prevail for most part of the day, but visibility should improve later in the day. "It should be somewhat better in the afternoon and visibility will improve," he said.
