The ongoing Indian Premier League season has been hit with a fresh blow. Three workers of Naam Tamilar Katchi (NTK) were detained for hurling shoes at Ravindra Jadeja and Faf du Plessis in the Chepauk stadium, Chennai during the last night’s game between Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders.

The incident took place when KKR was batting and a few Cauvery protesters hurled a shoe from the upper tier of the stands opposite to the main pavilion. The shoe was hurled at Ravindra Jadeja who was standing at the long-on.

Faf du Plessis, who was standing near the boundary rope was very quick to enter the field and remove the footwear. Some reports even suggested that a couple of shoes fell on the stands below. Earlier yesterday, the IPL chairman, Rajeev Shukla met the Union Home Secretary Rajeev Gauba and demanded good security arrangements for all the matches at the Chepauk Stadium, Chennai.

What happened in the game?

Coming to the game, it was Sam Billings’ night who made his debut for the CSK side and made it a game to remember for Chennai fans by scoring a quickfire half-century in the game. On the memorable night, Watson all-round brilliance stole the shoe. Eventhough, KKR posted a massive total of 202/6 in 20 overs with the help of Andre Russell’s explosive knock, CSK came up with brilliant all-round efforts right from Shane Watson to Sam Billings.

With the last night’s victory, Chennai Super Kings sit right on top of the points table with two  victories in two games. CSK will next play against Kings XI Punjab on Sunday in Mohali. Whereas KKR will take on Sunrisers Hyderabad on Saturday at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata
