Dharamshala to host two IPL matches
New Delhi: IPL commissioner Lalit Modi has informed CNN-IBN that Dharamshala will host two IPL games in the second season.

The Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association has promised floodlights will be provided at the venue within the next 30 days.

After the meeting in Mumbai on Friday it had been decided that 15 cities would be shortlisted to host the games. This apart from the nine venues that had earlier been announced for the IPL.

Nagpur has already been confirmed as a venue and Dharamshala has been added to that. Other cities that are being discussed include Ahmedabad, Indore, Rajkot, Baroda and Cuttack.

The reason for all these changes has been because of security concerns that heightened after the Lahore attacks.

PTI adds:

The Himachal Pradesh Association has been given the permission to host two IPL matches, HPCA spokesman Sanjay Sharma said on Saturday.

After getting the IPL Chairman Lalit Modi's permission, HPCA Stadium in Dharamsala will host two matches of the

Chandigarh team Punjab Kings XI, Sharma said.

Sharma said that the process of installing flood lights at Dharamsala Stadium at an estimated cost of Rs six crore is on and expected to be completed before April 15.

Besides, an electronic scoreboard would also be installed at the venue, the spokesman said.

I S Bindra, Special Adviser to the ICC, during a recent inspection of the ground had emphasised the necessity of flood

lights and electronic scoreboard for hosting big matches.

The HPCA spokesman also hoped that organising IPL matches would boost chances of host international matches in the days to come.
