Chennai Super Kings (CSK) fans got a disappointing news on Wednesday, as the BCCI and the IPL Governing Council decided to shift the home games of CSK from Chepauk to Pune.

The Chennai Police had cleared that they won't be able to provide security for the remaining matches amid of the Cauvery protest.

The fans got to watch their home team play at Chepauk after over 1000 days. But they won't witness any more encounters at Chennai, as the remaining matches got shifted to Pune. Not only fans, CSK players were also unhappy with the news. 

The CSK stalwart Suresh Raina wrote on Twitter, “Will miss playing on our home ground and entertaining our #Chennai fans this season…You are always in our hearts. On to #Pune now!”

The likes of Shane Watson, Imran Tahir, Michael Hussey and Stephen Fleming also shared their opinion.
