Mohali: Former England skipper Paul Collingwood joked that he might need to buy a "snow suit" for the final ODI between India and England to be held at Dharamsala where there is a forecast of snowfall.
     
Located in the foothills of the Himalayas, 1317 metres above sea level, Dharamsala was selected as the last venue for the five-match series but with temperature dropping to sub-zero, hosting the fifth ODI there remains a concern.
     
"Think I'll need my snow suit for Dharamsala Ind v Eng ODI," tweeted Collingwood.
     
"Shopping trip needed before Dharamsala then! Might try to do the pitch report with an ice pick," joked the 36-year-old, who is a TV expert.
     
On Wednesday morning, Collingwood had tweeted: "It was a tad nippy this morning I have to say, should have packed my Barbour jacket underclubbed"
     
Collingwood also praised the young Joe Root, who scored an unbeaten 57 off 45 balls laced with eight fours and a six to take England to 257 in the fourth one-dayer at the PCA Stadium here.
     
"No matter what happens in this series, Joe Root has made his mark on International cricket. What a find," he tweeted.
