IPL 2019 Final Match Shifted To Hyderabad
Posted Date:-4/23/2019 11:37:37 AM


Major changes have been made in the final of the 2019 IPL, which will be held on May 12. The match will not be played at Chennai's M. Chidambaram Stadium but it will be played at the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium in Hyderabad. In fact, the final was to be held in Chennai, but the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association was not allowed to open three stands, due to which the host has now been given to Hyderabad.


According to the tradition of the IPL, the final match is played on the home ground of the winning team, so it was hosted in Chennai in the first schedule.


The first qualifier match (May 7) will be played in Chennai. The aliminator (May 8) and the qualifier 2 (May 10) will be in Visakhapatnam. Vinod Rai, chairman of the CoA formed by the Supreme Court, said on Monday, ""We had to shift the matches from Chennai to Hyderabad after TNCA intimated us that they have not procured the requisite permission to open the three stands I, J and K."
