Jaipur,  All the remaining Indian Premier League (IPL) matches of Chennai Super Kings will be shifted out of Chennai to Pune in the wake of Tuesday’s violence over the Cauvery waters dispute.

“CSK will be asked to move their home matches to Pune as the Chennai police have expressed their inability to provide adequate security for the remaining matches,” IPL Chairman Rajeev Shukla told reporters here on Wednesday.

“We have put the ball in BCCI’s court and the board will now take a call on the issue,” he added.

Various Tamil groups had demanded that the authorities cancel all IPL matches in Chennai until the Cauvery Management Board (CMB) and Cauvery Water Regulatory Committee (CWRC) as mandated by the Supreme Court are set up the Central government.
