Top officials from Chennai did a meeting with the local police if they can provide adequate security. However, the police expressed their inability in ensuring enough personnel at the venue for the smooth conduct of the games.

However, during CSK’s game against Kolkata Knight Riders, a group of protesters demonstrated outside the stadium.

Amidst tight security, spectators threw a pair of shoes near the boundary ropes during the match. Moreover, this isn’t the first time Chennai will play their game outside the city. Previously, in 2014, the Super Kings played their home games in Ranchi.

Watson, who had an outstanding start to this year’s IPL took to Twitter to express his sorrow after hearing the news. Lauding the yellow brigade, Watson longed for a quick solution to this problem.

Very sad for our team @ChennaiIPL and the fans here in Chennai that we won’t be playing anymore games here this season. The atmosphere last game was incredible. Let’s hope this situation in Tamil Nadu is sorted out asap,” Watson tweeted.

Meanwhile, The Super Kings had a royal comeback to the coveted league. They had won two back-to-back last-over encounters to start their campaign.
