Indian Premier League 2014 Final Moved to Bangalore From Mumbai

Mumbai:

The Indian Premier League (IPL) Governing Council on Saturday revamped the schedule by taking away all the matches from Chennai while the June 1 final was allotted to Bangalore.

The council was forced to take the decision after the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA) said that it won't be possible to host any of the IPL matches in Chennai due to an ongoing legal tussle with the municipal authorities over the construction of three stands at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium.

Besides Bangalore, Kolkata was also awarded with a qualifier since the May 14 match at the Eden Gardens between Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians was moved to Cuttack due to elections in West Bengal.

Ranchi, which was awarded two of the four Super Kings matches, will also host the remaining two since the council felt that continuity was important.

Mumbai also got two of the four big matches but missed out on hosting the grand final. The Brabourne Stadium would host the eliminator slated for May 28 while Wankhede got the qualifier on May 30.
