Heavy and unpredictable rains have been a bane for Dharamsala cricket stadium. Many international and IPL matches here have been washed out due to heavy rains. Fearing heavy rain in the region now before every match the HPCA officials perform ‘puja’ to please the local rain god Indrunag.

Arun Dhumal said that experts would put in place a drainage system in the stadium ensuring that even if it rains there was no water-logging on the ground.

International cricket stadium in Dharamsala is a major tourist attraction among the tourists coming to the area. Hundreds of tourists visit the stadium every day.

The tourism industry of Dharamsala region which was reeling under losses due decline in tourist footfall has been demanding that the HPCA should organise more matches to lure tourists.
