The match had its fair share of problems, that saw shoes being hurled towards the CSK dug out. Now reports coming out of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is that, all CSK matches have been shifted, with a new venue to be announced soon. Chennai’s home game was preceded by massive protests from various groups and activists due to Cauvery water dispute.

Hundreds of demonstrators, some wearing black t-shirts and waving black balloons, gathered near the venue shouting slogans ahead of the CSK’ match against KKR. The state government had recommended IPL games be moved out of Chennai because of the protests but said they would provide security if they went ahead.

Tickets for Chennai’s next home game against Rajasthan Royals have been stopped for the time being.
