He wrote, “Gutted that we have had to move from Chepauk, the atmosphere was unbelievable! Thoughts with the fan who was badly hurt last night, no one should go to watch & end up in hospital. Hope he recovers soon & all issues are resolved. Keep supporting us it makes a huge difference!”

Pune is good venue for CSK home matches. Last year, PSG won 5 of their 7 home games there. Its Dhoni's hometown too. So crowd support will be exactly like Chepauk. Go go #CSK
