IPL 2018: Eliminator, Qualifier 2 shifted from Pune to Eden Gardens in Kolkata

Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium will play host to the Qualifier 1 and the Final on May 22 and 27 respectively.

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

Kolkata: The historic Eden Gardens will host two play-off matches that were originally scheduled in Pune, Indian Premier League (IPL) governing council confirmed on Friday.

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

As per the original schedule, Pune was scheduled to host the Eliminator and Qualifier 2 but the venue became Chennai Super Kings’ adopted home for six matches owing to security concerns for the Cauvery protests in Tamil Nadu.

“We are happy to host the play-off matches and are looking forward to it,” Cricket Association of Bengal joint-secretary Avishek Dalmiya said.
