Cricket fraternity reacts as Chennai Super Kings’ home games shifted to Pune due to Cauvery protests

A day after the Indian Premier League (IPL) returned to the MA Chidambaram Stadium following a two-year suspension, the Tamil Nadu capital has been stripped of all matches of the 11th edition of the league due to massive Cauvery protests that have rocked the state, informed IPL chief Rajeev Shukla on Wednesday.

“CSK will be asked to move their home matches to Pune as the Chennai police has expressed their inability to provide adequate security for the remaining matches,” said IPL Chairman Rajeev Shukla.


Chennai was scheduled to host seven matches of IPL 2018, the first of which was held on Tuesday where they prevailed over Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in a high-scoring thriller by five wickets. Even during that game, a pair of shoes was flung towards the long-on boundary in the eighth over of the match. The miscreants said to be from actor-director Seeman’s Naam pro-Tamil outfit Tamizhar, were evicted from the MA Chidambaram Stadium and were sent to custody.
