Cauvery stir: CSK home matches to be played in Pune

"The matches had to be shifted out of Chennai as police had said that they were unable to provide security in the prevailing situation". When given an option CSK wanted to host the remaining six matches in Mumbai.

But, Pune emerged out to be the victor.

Once Pune was awarded six CSK matches, it was decided that to maintain fairness, BCCI will opt for other venues giving them a chance to host marquee matches like the Eliminator on May 23 and Qualifier on May 25.

There were already calls by various groups not to host cricket matches in the city when the State was facing such a grave situation. They are Visakhapatnam, Trivandrum, Pune and Rajkot. "CSK is not averse to shifting base to Pune", IPL Chairman Rajiv Shukla told PTI.

"We have to keep in mind the prevailing political and security situation in the state". But we have told the CSK franchisee to evaluate the current situation and take a final call in this regard. "It will be CSK's decision", Rai, a former Comptroller and Auditor General, said.

Also, South Africa captain Faf du Plessis is recovering from a slight side strain and opener Murali Vijay is finding his way back to full fitness after taking a knock in the ribs early during the pre-tournament camp, CSK batting coach Mike Hussey said at a press conference ahead of the KKR game. BCCI turned down CSK's request as they did not want Mumbai to host almost 15 games.

IPL sources says Visakhapatnam is likely to be picked by the CSK management due to logistical reasons.

The match to be held on 20th between CSK and Rajasthan Royals would now be held in Pune, it has been officially announced.
