The IPL eliminator and Qualifier 2 on May 23 and 25 have been moved from Pune to Kolkata, league chairman Rajeev Shukla confirmed on Friday. There is no change to Qualifier 1 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

As per the norm, these matches are held at the home venue of the previous season’s runners-up, in this case the now disbanded Rising Pune Supergiant. 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.

“We are happy to host the play-off matches and are looking forward to it,” Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) joint-secretary Avishek Dalmiya was quoted as saying by PTI.

Mumbai will host Qualifier 1 and the final on May 22 and 27 respectively.
