The Chennai Super Kings (CSK) registered a thrilling win in their comeback to their fortress at Chepauk on Tuesday against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). They beat the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). The moment Ravindra Jadeja smashed the ball out of the park, the yellow army of the CSK supporters erupted as the home side had chased down the humungous total of 202. Certainly, it was a nail-biting game. Coming back to their home ground after two years, the Men in Yellow gave their fans a night to remember.

However, all of this will potentially not be seen in the season anymore. The yellow army will not surface the screens again in 2018. And the only reason behind this is the violation of political activists in the sport. Trying to seek the attention of the media and the government, some political parties and protesters targeted the home matches of the CSK. In a very unfortunate incident, some protesters hurled shoes on the ground during the first innings in the match recently. The shoe fell near Ravindra Jadeja, who was fielding on the boundary line in the 8th over of the innings.

Also, shoes fell near Faf du Plessis and Lungi Ngidi in the game. Later, pictures of du Plessis carrying a shoe thrown at him went viral on the social media. As the repercussions of the incident, the officials have decided to move the CSK home matches out of Chennai now. The cricketers are yet to give their reaction to this.

However, Jadeja recently took to Twitter and became the first player to come up with a remark on the same. In his tweet, he remarked that despite the protesters hurling shoes at the players, the players still have a lot of love for their fans in Chennai. He tweeted, “Still we have a lots of love and care for our csk fans. #fans #csk.”
