The Board of Control for Cricket in India on Monday shifted the Champions League Twenty20 matches, slated for September 17 to October 6, out of Hyderabad due to security fears.
The qualifier and the group stages in Hyderabad have now been shifted to other venues. The six qualifiers slated for September 17, 18 and 20, will now be played at the Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) Stadium in Mohali.
The three double-headers in the group stage will now be held on Mohali, Ranchi and Ahmedabad. The PCA Stadium in Mohali will host the double-header on September 24.
The JSCA International Stadium complex in Ranchi will host the September 28 double-header and the Sardar Patel Gujarat Stadium at Motera, Ahmedabad, will host the double-header slated for Sept 30.
The ongoing Telangana agitation has created a political turmoil in Andhra Pradesh, and the City police was also unable to provide enough security.
