The Indian Premier league(IPL) is surely the most uncertain game with the maximum number of twists and turns. There is yet shocking news for the so-called “IPL fans”. The Finals of IPL 2014, which was to be hosted in Chennai’s MA Chidambaram stadium, has been changed to Bangalore’s M Chinnaswamy. In fact, the MA Chidambaram has been deprived of the rights of hosting any of the scheduled games of IPL this year. This was because there was a dispute with the municipal authorities over the use of three stands at the MA Chidambaram stadium. Kolkata will get a chance to host the Play-offs session after the governing council announced the revamped schedule.
Chennai’s two league games have been shifted to Ranchi, while Mumbai gets a chance to host two of the four big games despite losing the chance to host the finals.
The dispute has arisen due to the prolonged deadlock between the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association and the Municipal Corporation out there due to the formation of three new stands and a gymnasium at the MA Chidambaram. The legality of theses stands and gymnasium has been questioned. The Supreme Court ordered both the respective authorities to reach to the final conclusion, due to the ongoing IPL tournament, the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association informed the IPL authorities late on Friday; their inability to host IPL matches.
Since Ranchi is the second home of Chennai Super Kings, the governing council members decided to maintain continuity and plan the remaining two matches at the JSCA international stadium. The finals also cannot be hosted in Wankhede stadium in Mumbai, because of some of the VIP’s complains to the IPL committee, of not getting sufficient parking facility. This caused a lot of issue which raised the conclusion of hosting the finals at M. Chinnaswamy in Bangalore.
With the players of IPL toil hard to achieve victory for their team, “the behind the screen players” i.e the committee members and the Cricket associations look out to the player’s comfort and their home team’s persecution which is not seen by most of the people. Let’s see the finals craze at the M. Chinnaswamy on June 1 which is said to have the best supporting crowd in the whole of India.
