The first qualifier and eliminator of the Indian Premier League (IPL) was on Saturday shifted to Delhi from Chennai, putting an end to the uncertainty over the venue for the crucial matches.

The decision to shift the play-off matches to Feroze Shah Kotla was taken by the IPL authorities after the Tamil Nadu government stuck to its stand on not allowing the Sri Lankan players to play in the wake of the anti-Sinhalese sentiments in the State.

“The play-offs have been shifted to Delhi from Chennai,” a top IPL official told PTI.

The first qualifier was originally scheduled at the Chepauk on May 21 and the eliminator on the following day. The matches will now be held on the same dates at Kotla.

    Now this has taught TN a lesson, Our own Arjuna also should learn from this.

    Loosing home ground advantage is a bigger loss to TN politicians than the comments of few SLns on dailymirror online. If Chennai loose the game, fans will curse TN politicians.

    Who is the best performing Sri Lankan in IPL? Mahela with some runs and Thisara with some all round performance.

    The same system should have been adopted long before by the Indian Authorities while playing with Pakistani Cricket team. Well done IPL Authority... you taught a good lesson to Madras (cal) politicians.

    Way to go IPL. Nice to have good news once in a blue moon. Hope you're happy now Tamil Nadu. You can watch the matches on TV while you suck eggs.

    Not playing srilankans in Chennai may be not affect any IPL matches....already our players are not included many matches because of their performances including team captains

    A very good, bold decision by the IPL authorities. This will clearly show the tamil nadu chief Jayalalitha and its bloody third class citizens.. that politics and sports are not to be mixed and that their uneducated decisions are not accepted or even considered as an individual issue by the majority of the indians. via DM Android App

    Not necessary. Srilankan players are in poor form in IPL. Many not even selected to play out of Chennai in many matches

    Enekkena Sunday, 28 April 2013 05:22 AM

    PL authorities respected her concerns.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Sunday, 28 April 2013 02:33 AM

    The fat lady can now watch the matches on TV

    ANTON Sunday, 28 April 2013 01:23 AM

    Because of Jayalalitha, Tamilnadu cricket fans will have to travel a long distance to watch the semifinals, anyway very good reaction made by the organizers.

    Truth Hurts Saturday, 27 April 2013 11:56 PM

    Stupid TN politicians have deprived Chennai cricket fans some great moments of cricket.
