IPL 6 2013 playoffs venue changed: The first two IPL playoff games, which were scheduled to be played in Chennai on May 21 and 22, have been moved to Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi.

The first two IPL playoff games, which were scheduled to be played in Chennai on May 21 and 22, have been moved to Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi. The decision was taken after consensus emerged among the BCCI top brass because political tension in Tamil Nadu over the participation of the Sri Lankan cricketers was unlikely to subside.
