The Cauvery dispute has reared it’s ugly head once again, as this long standing feud between Tamil Nadu and Karnataka has created issues in the IPL this year.
The severe water drought in Tamil Nadu has been a major issue, as matches in Chennai will now be played in Pune.
Politics has once again played spoil sport, as the Cauvery Water dispute has agitated the protesters, who have threatened to release snakes in the stadium. The IPL could not risk something like this from ever happening, which is why all the matches will not be held in Pune.
CSK have been involved in two themselves, as they won both their matches in the last over. Unfortunately for CSK fans, their side’s win over KKR will be the only match that they will get to witness in Chennai this year, as all of CSK’s matches have been shifted to Pune.
CSK are also facing a few injuries, as both Kedar Jadhav and Suresh Raina will miss the next few matches. While Jadhav is out for the tournament, Raina is expected to come back after a couple of weeks.
In spite of a wonderful opening match at the Chepauk, the great Chennai fans will not be able to watch their heroes in action. A recent video has now surfaced, in which some of the protesters were seen attacking a few CSK supporters.
This video is disturbing, and has created outrage on various social media platforms. The players themselves were disappointed, as they loved the atmosphere at Chepauk, and wanted to win matches in front of the passionate Chennai supporters.
Here is the Video :
