Blaming the cold weather conditions responsible for his team's 10-run loss to India in the third ODI here, Pakistan skipper Misbah-ul-Haq today said the Kotla pitch changed its behaviour as the fog descended on the ground which made the run chase "very difficult". "The weather made all the difference. Survival became difficult as the fog descended on the ground. The pitch which looked like a batting track changed its behaviour as the temperature dipped," Misbah said at the post match press conference. "When we started the run chase, the Indian seamers got the movement and swing, the spinners got the required turn and bounce. It's not only about survival but the chase became all the more difficult. When they batted, only Mahendra Singh Dhoni could manage to score runs, when we batted it was opener Nasir Jamshed. Apart from the duo, no other batsman from both the sides could score runs," he added. Chasing a paltry 168 for win, Pakistan were bowled out for 157, thereby handing India a face-saving win in the three-match series. PTI
