The Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders have been tightened for the night tonight after the Cauvery Water Disputes Committee (BCCI) formed a protest against the Tamil Nadu government. 4,000 police personnel have been deployed around Chennai’s Chidambaram (Chepauk) stadium for a good run.
The political parties of Tamil Nadu and some frantic groups demanded that the IPL should not be held in Chennai until the Cauvery Water Management Committee was formed and the audience demanded the boycott of the match.
Empty galleries populated by the game send a clear message to the center. The Tamil Cauvery fighters have demanded that the Center be formed on a neutral committee. On Monday, protesters protested by shooting black balloons around the stadium. Today, the police have tried to hold a protest near the ground.
