Eden Gardens

Eden Gardens

The two Indian Premier League (IPL) playoff matches, which were originally scheduled in Pune, will take place at the Eden Gardens, it was confirmed on Friday. The playoff games had been allotted to Pune as Rising Pune Supergiant was the finalist in 2017. However, the moving of six Chennai Super Kings home games to the MCA Stadium in Pune because of protests and threats to disrupt their matches in Chennai forced the change.

The council has confirmed that Kolkata will host the Eliminator and Qualifier 2 on May 23 and 25 respectively, IPL chairman Rajeev Shukla said.

The 67,000 capacity Eden Gardens emerged as the frontrunner and was adequately compensated by the IPL GC.

We are happy to host the play-off matches and are looking forward to it, Avishek Dalmiya, Joint-Secretary, Cricket Association of Bengal said.

Mumbai will have qualifier 1 and the competition last May 22 and 27 separately.
