Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium, Dhar
Himachal Pradesh is arguably India’s most picturesque cricket stadium. The nearest airport to the stadium is Gaggal at Kangra, which is just 15 km away. The stadium is home to Himachal Pradesh cricket team for Ranji Trophy matches and other limited overs matches. The stadium is also a backup venue to host three IPL matches as the home stadium of Kings XI Punjab.

The first international team that played here was the Pakistan national cricket team, that played a tour match against an Indian Board President's XI in 2005.
