CSK's successive "home" matches on 28th April (Vs MI), 30th April (Vs DD), 05th May (Vs RCB), 13th May (SRH) and 20th May (KXIP) would now be held in Pune.

The venue had hosted Chennai Super Kings' game against Kolkata Knight Riders on Tuesday (April 10) under extraordinary circumstances that saw protests and rallies in the roads leading to the stadium. "We are ready", a Maharashtra Cricket Association official told mid-day.

It happened because the government said that they are not able to give full security to IPL.
