IPL matches to be shifted outside Chennai?

IPL matches to be shifted outside Chennai?

After an exciting finish in CSK's first game against MI, we witnessed another breathtaking game between Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders. "The matches had to be shifted out of Chennai as police had said that they were unable to provide security in the prevailing situation". But, according to Shukla, "CSK are not averse to playing in Pune". Visakhapatnam, Thiruvananthapuram, Pune and Rajkot are the names doing the rounds.

"Tomorrow ticket sales for the match between Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals on 20.04.18 has been postponed, Further details will be intimated in due course: Tamil Nadu Cricket Association", ANI said on their Twitter handle. Thanks to an explosive start by openers Shane Watson and Ambati Rayadu, CSK chased down a mammoth target of 202 runs in front of their home crowd to win their second game of IPL 2018.

Sam Billings' blistering half century overshadowed Andre Russell's powerful 88 off 36 balls as Chennai Super Kings won a high-scoring Indian Premier League match against Kolkata Knight Riders by five wickets on Tuesday. One of the shoes landed near the feet of CSK player Ravindra Jadeja, who was fielding at long-on, in the eighth over of the first innings.

Manchester City need to produce 'perfect game' against Liverpool, Guardiola says
City could barely have endured a worse result ahead of Tuesday's second leg against Liverpool . Guardiola admits that nothing but a "perfect" game will suffice for his team to get through.

Although the cricket match was played without any untoward incident, the behaviour of the protestors has come in for widespread condemnation.

It was played amid tight security over a water-sharing dispute with a neighbouring state as Chennai returned to the IPL after a two-year suspension. Some protesters at Anna Salao were seen raising slogans against Prime Minister Narendra Modi for not establishing the Cauvery Management Board, an issue on which Tamil Nadu political parties including DMK and other outfits have been agitating for the past one week. Earlier, it was informed that the matches in Chennai will go ahead despite the growing protests. People are angry about the Cauvery water dispute, so at this time organizing this game is not right. The Calypso onslaught was on both sides, with Dwayne Bravo copping the full force of his one-time national teammate, conceding seven sixes from the blade of Russell, the most he has ever gone for in his 377 T20 matches.
