The Tau Devi Lal Stadium is a multi-sport complex in Panchkula, a town in the outskirts of Chandigarh. The cricket stadium, one that's been taken on a ten-year lease from the Haryana government, is a relatively small one. Capable of holding around 7000 spectators, the ground came into prominence because of the Indian Cricket League's inaugural Twenty20 tournament. Six flood-lit towers are stationed in the perimeter. The outfield is rough and patchy and the pitch is an untested one. The practice facilities include four batting nets behind the ground, all containing concrete pitches to bat on. ICL organisers feel it's an architecturally well-designed stadium, allowing stands to be erected when required.
