New Delhi [India], May 04 (ANI): The venue of two Indian Premier League (IPL) playoffs has been moved to Kolkata's Eden Gardens from Pune, the league's governing council announced on Friday.

The IPL 2018 Eliminator and the Qualifier 2 will be held on May 23 and 25 respectively at the Eden Gardens.

Earlier, the Maharashtra Cricket Association's International Stadium in Pune was scheduled to host the playoffs, but since it became the Chennai Super Kings' (CSK) home ground, the council decided the shift the matches to Kolkata.

The CSK made Pune its home ground owing to security risks arising from the Cauvery protests.

The Qualifier 1 and finals will go ahead as scheduled at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai, on May 22 and May 27 respectively. (ANI)
