Chennai: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has shortlisted four cities to host Chennai Super King’s (CSK) home matches after the IPL franchise was told to consider shifting base due to the Cauvery water dispute, which has created political situation in the state.
Committee of Administrators (CoA) Chairman Vinod Rai confirmed that the prevailing situation has forced them to explore options.
According to IPL sources, Visakhapatnam is front-runner from among the four cities, the other three being Trivandrum, Pune and Rajkot.
Massive protests were witnessed yesterday ahead of the match between CSK and Kolkata Knight Riders and a protestor flung a shoe at CSK’s Ravindra Jadeja during the match.
CSK has made a comeback to the IPL after serving two-year suspension on charges of spot-fixing in 2013.
