Cold weather awaits the India-England match in Dharamshala

January 24, 2013 3:13 PM |

Weather in India in its Himalayan state Himachal Pradesh is witnessing sub-zero minimum temperatures at places like Dharamshala, the venue for the fifth one-day international cricket match between India and England. Skymet Weather forecasts the minimum temperature in Dharamshala on the 27th January, the day when the two teams will lock horns, between 0º to -3ºC.

Match will have a breezy start at 9am under overcast conditions. The sky will then become partly cloudy during the day that will register the maximum temperatures towards 10 degrees. Weather in India by this time of the year is affected by the snowfall in the higher altitudes in northwest Himalayan range.

Freezing temperatures are one of the characteristics of weather in India in these parts including Dharamshala at this time of the year. Dharamshala is about 240 km away from capital Shimla.

But if fans want to experience cricket under such weather in India, there is no better place than Dharamshala in the entire Indian subcontinent. The venue is unique in India as it is situated at a height of 1,457m above sea level and has snow-capped mountains in the backdrop.

This will also be the first international match in Dharamshala. Other than the Indian Premier league matches, the venue first hosted an international team: Pakistan, during a tour match against an Indian Board President's XI in 2005.

Cricket fans will also enjoy one of the main attractions of Dharamshala, the Triund hill. Jewel of Dharamshala, Triund is a one-day trek at the upper reaches of McLeod Ganj, located at a distance of about 9 kms. Dharamshala is the center of the Tibetan exile world in India.
