IPL 2018 slated to be held in Chennai remained cancelled in lieu of the latest protests of celebrities holding hands irrespective of their political stings, caste, creed, religion and region. Finally, Tamils succeeded in moving IPL out of Chennai amidst strong protests till the government forms the Cauvery Water Management Board.
IPL Cricket Matches Moved Out Of Chennai
In a press release one group – “Tamizhaga Vazhvurimai Katchi or TVK — even threatened to release live snakes into the stadium if no cancellation happened.”
Thousands of people from Tamilnadu despite their passion towards cricket never compromised and obstructed the most crowded – Anna Salai road in Chennai, near the Chepauk Stadium, and tried to boycott the cricket match between Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders. There were 7 matches scheduled to be held in Chennai.
The first match happened with tight security but in vain. Slippers were hurled on players and yellow Jerseys of Chennai Super Kings were burnt. It was complete ‘Cricket boycott’ after its first held game.
Now rest of the 6 IPL matches have to find the new venue. BCCI is pondering over it. The new venue will be found soon.
There were some scuffles in some parts between cricket fans and Cauvery water protests but negligible.
800 people were detained by the police in this imbroglio.
Responding to the violence on the police by people Rajinikanth in his tweet said, “The worst form of violence is the assault on uniformed personnel”. Earlier, he said, “holding cricket matches when Cauvery protests are on, is an – embarrassment.”
Presently BBCI is on the lookout for a suitable venue to conduct remaining 6 IPL matches where peace prevails.
