No more IPL matches in Chennai this season

No more IPL matches in Chennai this season”

Raina will miss a Super Kings match for the first time in his career when he won't appear against Kings XI Punjab in Mohali on Sunday and against Rajasthan Royals in Pune on April 20.

Leaving Chennai was always going to be tough for the Chennai Super Kings players who would now be playing their left home games at their new adopted home in Pune.

During Tuesday's game, the team told the sellout crowd they will not be allowed to take mobile phones, bags or other electronic devices into the stadium.

It has to be mentioned here that thousands of pro-Tamil activists held a protest on Tuesday and called for a boycott of the IPL cricket match between Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders.

The CSK fans turned out in huge numbers to support their home side as cricket returned to Chennai after a break of two years.

Asked why Pune was selected, an IPL source said that captain Dhoni knows the conditions well and logistically it made sense to have Pune as the new venue instead of Visakhapatnam.

"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. "All I can say is, yes we are disappointed not to play in Chennai".

IPL chairman Rajiv Shukla confirmed on Wednesday that upcoming matches of the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will be relocated outside the state due to growing security concerns. "Let's hope this situation in Tamil Nadu is sorted out asap", he added. "Great to be back and again experience the love and passion the Tamil Nadu fans have for cricket and CSK", He further said that he is hopeful of a peaceful resolution on the ongoing conflict.

DMK leader and founder S Ramadoss were the first to demand that the matches be moved out till the crisis was resolved.

The Board had earlier short-listed four cities to host CSK's home matches.

Tensions reached a high-point when shoes were flung at CSK players inside the MA Chidambaram Stadium.

Cauvery water issue has roped in IPL and people from the state are demanding ban on IPL. CSK has played some of its "home" matches in the past at Ranchi.
