No ball: Cauvery protests flush IPL out of Chennai

No ball: Cauvery protests flush IPL out of Chennai

"The matches had to be shifted out of Chennai as police had said that they were unable to provide security in the prevailing situation". "Extremely sad to leave chennai.All I got here is warm welcome and unconditional love.Hopefully everything will be good when we come back here next year".

"The safety of the teams and the spectators were the reasons for the shifting of the matches", said BCCI's acting president C.K. Khanna.

CSK still have six home games to play with all fixtures still set for their original dates.

The issue escalated further when a group of protestors pelted shoes inside the Chepauk Stadium on April 10, during CSK's first match on their home ground.

While Kerala Cricket Association has shown interest in hosting the matches in Thiruvananthapuram, Visakhapatnam has emerged as the favourite because of logistics and the city's infrastructure.

"Because of the volatile situation we have been apprised that it is better to reschedule the games", Viswanathan said. "The BCCI and the proprietors of CSK must allow the players to do so".

All the remaining Indian Premier League (IPL) matches of Chennai Super Kings will be shifted out of Chennai to Pune in the wake of Tuesday's violence over the Cauvery waters dispute.

Billings, on debut for CSK, took it upon himself to deliver a memorable victory for the Super Kings, who were playing their first match at home since 2015.

Asked why Ranchi, the hometown of CSK's iconic captain M.S. Dhoni was not considered, he said: "It was not in the list given to us by the Board".

However, on Wednesday, a Tamil protest group threatened to take extraordinary action by releasing snakes during Chennai's next game on April 20 against Rajasthan Royals if it was not moved to another city.

Yesterday, the teams had to enter the MA Chidambaram stadium through the back gate as the complex turned into a fortress with the deployment of hundreds of police personnel. While there was no confirmation that the shoe-throwing incident was directly related to the Cauvery river water issue, it was the likely cause.
