CSK to escape protests and snakes?

Chennai Super Kings players took to social media to express their disappointment a day after BCCI was forced to shift the franchise's remaining home fixtures to Pune in the 11th Indian Premier League.

Senior batsman Suresh Raina also took to Twitter to say he would miss "our home ground" and the fans.

Speaking to reporters, CSK CEO Viswanathan said: "Yes, I met the Chennai Police Commissioner". In this blog, let us see the three factors that may derail Chennai's charge in the Vivo IPL 201. "Pune has better connectivity, so it was decided that CSK shift base to Pune", the source said.

The venue had hosted Chennai Super Kings' game against Kolkata Knight Riders on Tuesday (April 10) under extraordinary circumstances that saw protests and rallies in the roads leading to the stadium.

While Kerala Cricket Association has shown interest in hosting the matches in Thiruvananthapuram, Visakhapatnam has emerged as the favourite because of logistics and the city's infrastructure. "The atmosphere last game was incredible", he said.

Chennai Super Kings is one of the most consistent franchises in the history of T20 cricket can be testified by multiple IPL and Champions League titles to go with a plethora of appearances in the finals of a marquee event.

The decision to move the IPL matches out of Chennai comes despite the Supreme Court's repeated exhortation to the Tamil Nadu government to maintain calm and restore peace in the State while the court was examining the Cauvery dispute.

In response, frustrated locals came to blows with police and threw shoes on the field during their first home game on Tuesday. "Normally they [the IPL governing council] will give a list of venues available", he said. After the authorities couldn't promise further security for the upcoming games, the BCCI made a decision to shift CSK's base to Pune. "We have conveyed that to the BCCI and awaiting (further) information".

The organisers have a few days to put arrangements in place as CSK play their next home game on April 20 against Rajasthan Royals. They also staged road blockade at busy roads in the vicinity of MA Chidambaram Stadium.
