  • Why Dwayne Bravo and Kieron Pollard wore identical jerseys with Number 400 in IPL 2018 opener

Massive protests were witnessed yesterday ahead of the match between CSK and Kolkata Knight Riders and an identified protester flung a shoe at CSK's Ravindra Jadeja during the match.

Committee of Administrator (CoA) chief Vinod Rai had earlier said that the prevailing situation has forced them to explore options and they had kept four alternative venues ready.

Following that ugly incident, reports are coming that rest of the matches which are scheduled to be played in Chennai will be shifted to another venue.

In the fifth match of the Indian Premier League, Chennai Super Kings defeated Kolkata by 5 wickets on their home turf. But according to IPL sources, Visakhapatnam is front-runner from among alternate venues, with Pune and Rajkot being the others. CSK's first match in Pune will be against Rajasthan Royals on April 20.

Four cities have emerged as contenders to host Chennai Super Kings' home matches.

Just three days after beating the Mumbai Indians off the penultimate ball of the match, the Chennai Super Kings did the same thing to the Kolkata Knight Riders courtesy of Sam Billings' 23-ball 56.

The Tamizhaga Vazhvurimai Katchi (TVK) leader T Velmurugan asserted on Wednesday that till the Cauvery Water Management Board is formed, they will not allow IPL matches to be held in Chennai.

Thiruvananthapuram MP and Congress leader Shashi Tharoor too said on Wednesday the matches would be played at Thiruvananthapuram's Sports Hub if the BCCI made a decision to shift the venue to Kerala. Remarkably, Vinay Kumar served up a waist high full toss that was duly dispatched for six over backward square, the resulting free hit yielding Chennai two, with Bravo's side effectively getting nine from the first legal delivery of the over. All of them played less balls and scored more runs so far.

He said when the entire state of Tamil Nadu was on an agitation mode for its rights on the Cauvery issue, an IPL fixture, which was an entertainment event, was not needed.

The court had granted six weeks to the Centre to formulate a scheme to ensure compliance of its 465-page judgement on the decades-old Cauvery dispute, modifying the Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal award of 2007. But with the protests gaining momentum and paralysing the city for a few hours, the state government and the city police don't want to take chances.

31 Number of sixes hit in the match - equal the existing IPL record.
