IS Bindra Profile:

The IS Bindra Cricket Stadium is a relatively new ground based in Mohali, Punjab, that was established in 1993 after three years of construction. It is also simply known as the Mohali Stadium.

It is home of the Punjab cricket team and Kings XI Punjab in the Indian Premier League. It has also hosted the India national team.

The first Test match played at the ground was held in December 1994 when India took on West Indies.

The stadium hosted World Cup games in both 1996 and 2011. Two of the most memorable games to take place at the venue was the World Cup semi-final between Australia and West Indies in 1996 and the semi-final between India and Pakistan in 2011.

IS Bindra Cricket Stadium played host to its first T20I in 2009 as India secured a six-wicket success over Sri Lanka. The ground then went on to host three matches during the 2016 World T20 tournament.

The stadium is also known for its unusually low floodlights. These were installed at a low height to avoid aircraft from the nearby Chandigarh airport.

The highest individual score at the IS Bindra Cricket Stadium was recorded by Rohit Sharma in December 2017.

He smashed an unbeaten 208 from 153 balls for India during the second ODI against Sri Lanka.

What to look for when betting on matches at IS Bindra Stadium

The pitch at Bindra Stadium quickly had a reputation for being friendly to pace attacks in its early days but has since slowed down to favour batting.

Looking at betting on pace bowlers early in a match should be considered when looking to bet on games taking place at the ground.

However, the pitch is known to slow considerably as the game wears on to become a batting-friendly surface, though this can assist spin bowling also.

Betting on IPL matches at IS Bindra Stadium

The average first innings score for T20 matches at the ground during 2019 was 171, which should be something to consider when looking to bet on IPL games.

Historically, batting second on the ground has also been the best tactic when looking at the stats for non-international T20s. In the last 10 years, the team batting second has won 62.5 per cent of the time, compared to just 33.9 per cent for teams batting first.
