The Punjab Cricket Association Stadium is located at Mohali, just outside the city of Chandigarh, Punjab. It is popularly referred to as the Mohali Stadium, and has an official capacity of 30,000 spectators.

The lights here are unconventional compared to other cricket stadiums, in that the light pillars are very low in height. This is to avoid aircraft from the nearby airport colliding with the light pillars.

The 19th and youngest Test cricket venue in India, this is one of the larger grounds in the country and sports a lush outfield. The pitch had an early reputation for being lively and supporting pace bowlers. India were rolled over for 83 on the first morning against New Zealand in 1999 - but it changed complexion drastically over the next few years and turned into a dead pitch producing high-scoring draws.

PCA stadium is home of Kings XI Punjab (IPL Mohali franchisee).
