Dharamsala: The picturesque cricket venue at Dharamsala, which has been allotted the Indian Premier League matches for the first time this year, will have state-of-the-art indoor practice facilities soon.

The indoor facility, to be completed by March this year with an estimated cost of Rs 8 crore, will have six synthetic pitches, Joint Secretary of the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association (HPCA) Ashim Aggarwal told PTI.

"Best bowling machines have already been acquired to meet the needs of batsmen. The indoor practise area will be 80 feet by 150 feet. Besides a rehabilitation centre for the injured cricketers would also be attached to it," Aggarwal said.

HPCA chief Anurag Thakur, who recently toured South Africa as manager of the Indian team, said the rehabilitation centre would provide high quality medicinal, physiotherapy and sports medicine treatment.

The stadium is scheduled to host two IPL matches in April -- between Kings XI Punjab and Deccan Chargers on 16th and between Punjab and Chennai Super Kings on 18th.
