IPL matches scheduled to be held in Chennai will be shifted to another venue, amid protests demanding a boycott of the matches over the formation of Cauvery Management Board (CMB).
The remaining IPL matches are likely to be held now in Kerala, sources have said. The decision is followed by a string of anti-IPL protests in the state over the issue of the formation of Cauvery Managment Board. Protesters are demanding a boycott of the IPL matches in Chennai until the Cauvery water issues is solved.
The opposition by pro-Tamil outfits to the IPL matches was that the game would divert the attention of the youth from the Cauvery issue and lessen the impact of the state-wide stir.
