“Tomorrow ticket sales for the match between Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals on 20.04.18 has been postponed, Further details will be intimated in due course: Tamil Nadu Cricket Association,” ANI said on their Twitter handle.

The ongoing 11th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) matches, which were scheduled to be held in Chennai, are reportedly set to be moved out of the state in the wake of the ongoing protest against the Centre's negligence for the formation of Cauvery Management Board (CMB).

According to the sources, all the Chennai Super Kings' IPL matches will be moved from the state's Chepauk Stadium to another venue.

 

The news came just a day after Chennai Super Kings made a happy homecoming at MA Chidambaram Stadium and went on to beat Kolkata Knight Riders in the last-over thriller on Tuesday

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 an IPL match held there.

The arrested party workers were charged for beating up policemen on duty who were deployed to curb the protest and ensure the match to be held between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) was played without trouble.
