punjab cricket associa-tion stadium

The Punjab Cricket Association Stadium in Mohali is also known as the IS Bindra Stadium. It is one of the unique cricket grounds in India as it has very low floodlights and more than 16 towers. 

This was done in order to avoid the aircraft landing or taking off from the airport nearby from crashing against the floodlight towers.  

Even though the ground is a recent and new venue compared to other big centres in India, it has already hosted plenty of international games across formats. 

The first international game played here was between India and South Africa during the Hero Cup in 1993.

PCA has hosted many games after that and has built a reputation for being one of the pace-assisting wickets in India though it has slowed down in the recent past. 

One of the most famous matches it has hosted would be the World Cup semi-final between India and Pakistan in 2011 where there was tension in the air, it was attended by the PM of both the countries. 

PCA also plays home to the Punjab state team in domestic tournaments and also to the Punjab franchise in the Indian Twenty20 League. 

The ground has been a very lucky one for the Indian national team especially in the Test format as they have not lost a game there since the inaugural match against the Windies 

This venue has also seen some landmarks being created and some memorable games.
