IPL matches in tense Chennai could be moved

Chennai Super Kings won the first match dramatically

They also sought to know whether IPL match should be held at a time Tamil Nadu was witnessing protests on the Cauvery issue.

According to news agency ANI, Shukla said, "We had made a decision to hold all IPL matches in Chennai on police's assurance that adequate security would be provided". Due to the owner of the team Shah Rukh Khan, KKR has become very famous throughout the World.

The match was executed between them at the home venue of Chennai Super Kings named M. A. Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai. And despite KKR putting up a huge total in the first innings the host didn't let their fans down by clinching yet another thriller.

The Cauvery water dispute on Wednesday forced the BCCI to shift Chennai Super Kings' remaining home games to Pune as the state administration expressed inability to ensure adequate security arrangements for the Indian Premier League (IPL) matches.

With KKR slumping at 89 for five in the 10th over, Russell arrived to inspire the best partnership of the innings as he posted 76 from 46 deliveries for the sixth wicket - en route to the highest score by a number seven batsman or lower in the IPL.

KKR lost two wickets in the form of Sunil Narine (12), and Chris Lynn (22) who failed to make the most of a reprieve when Deepak Chahar grassed a hard catch off Harbhajan's bowling. Things went from bad to worse for KKR as Uthappa (29 off 16) was run out against the run of play as Raina hit the stumps direct at the non-strikers' end. "It has good revenue and most of the important CSK players played for Pune so they have the comfort and connect", he said. Vinay's decisive over proved to be too costly and with four needed to win off the final two balls, Ravindra Jadeja tonked one over long-off for the winning runs.




Billings, one of the two changes made by Chennai, blazed 56 off 23 balls to carry Chennai to 205-5 with a ball to spare.

Games on: Russel hits repeated sixes, CSK take a wicket with Watson getting Karthik out at 17.4 overs.

The CSK chase began well with Shane Watson and Ambati Rayudu going berserk right from the word go.

The pressure put by Mahendra Singh Dhoni's slow batting (25 off 28 balls) was neutralised by Billings. But Kolkata finally pulled it back with Tom Curran sending back Watson for a 19-ball 42 as CSK ended the powerplay on 75/1 after 6 overs.

Five members of the Naam Thamizhar Katchi (NTK) were arrested by police guarding the stands when they threw chappals into the ground and raised slogans swaying their red flag with its "tiger" insignia.
