Karnataka are presently leading the group with 26 points from six games, with Mumbai closely behind on 23 points from as many matches.
However, 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. 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.
