IPL play-offs shifted to DelhiThe first Qualifier and Eliminator of the Indian Premier League 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.

According to IPL sources, Bangalore and Pune were also in the reckoning but the Governing Council opted for Delhi as the venue for the two matches.

The IPL Governing Council, which had met in Chennai on April 22 to take a decision on the issue had felt that the state government's views on whether they would re-consider their stand on Sri Lankan players should be taken into account before taking a final decision.

The IPL had written to the state government for their views on whether they would allow the Sri Lankans to take part in these two matches.

Apparently, their efforts failed, prompting the authorities to shift the venue.
