Mohali ground stats

March 08, 2006 20:29 IST

Barely eight kms from the city centre in Chandigarh, Mohali's Punjab Cricket Association Stadium is the most modern of the Indian stadiums with a capacity of about 40,000.

It can be the perfect settings for cricket with an excellent wicket and outfield and first class facilities.

Cricket buffs haven't yet forgotten a misty December morning in 1994 when, in the first-ever Test on this ground, the West Indian pace bowlers Courtney Walsh and Kenny Benjamin terrorised the Indian batting - and dressing room - to fashion an incredible win for the guests.

Since then, the grass on the wicket has become scarcer, so much so that only one Test out of last five have produced a result - India beating England by 10 wickets in December 2001.
