Suresh Raina ruled out of CSK's next two IPL matches

VIVO IPL 2018

According to reports, four cities Thiruvananthapuram, Visakhapatnam, Rajkot, and Pune have been shortlisted where remaining matches can be organized.

However, the clash was marred by controversy as 21 Naam Tamilar Katchi (NTK) party workers were arrested and sent to Puzhal Central Prison for holding protests over Cauvery issue outside Chennai's Chepauk Stadium in a bid to stop the match.

Many obliged, but that didn't stop them hurling their shoes in protest.

The state administration expressed inability to ensure adequate security arrangements for the Indian Premier League (IPL) matches in Chennai where protests are going on, demanding setting up of a Cauvery Water Management board.

He will miss CSK's next two IPL games against Kings XI Punjab on April 15 and Rajasthan Royals on April 20. Familiar conditions was also a major factor in the team choosing Pune over other venues.

Among the venues that were discussed, Vizag featured prominently because of its proximity to Chennai.

"The safety of the teams and the spectators were the reasons for the shifting of the matches", said BCCI's acting president C.K. Khanna.

While the fans have been left disheartened by the move, so have been the CSK players who wanted to repay the enthusiastic home crowd with deserved cricket. "All I can say is, yes we are disappointed not to play in Chennai". "Normally they [the IPL governing council] will give a list of venues available", he said.

CSK's head coach Stephen Fleming also took to Twitter to express his sorrow over the decision.

The CEO said captain Dhoni has taken it in his stride. On Monday, the city police deployed about 4,000 personnel to keep the situation under control during CSK's first home game against KKR. We have to fix the price based on an agreement with the State government. "But if the protests go beyond that, it would be hard to keep things under control", a source said.

The 37-year-old, who was bought by CSK from Mumbai Indians at January's auction, wants matches to return to the capital city of the Southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu soon.
