Hyderabad: It is official. Hyderabad will not host any of the Champions League T20 qualifying matches that were originally allotted to it. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Monday announced the shifting of all the matches to Mohali, Ranchi and Ahmedabad. This follows apprehensions expressed by the Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) and the inability of the local police to provide security cover for the event due to Ganesh immersion and the ongoing Seemandhra agitation. Four teams, host Sunrisers Hyderabad, Otago Volts from New Zealand, Sri Lankan outfit Kandurata Maroons and Faisalabad Wolves from Pakistan- were to play each other once in the CLT20 qualifiers at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium on September 17, 18 and 20. The three double-headers of the group stages, too, have been shifted out from the State. While Mohali will host two matches on September 24, Ranchi has bagged the double-header on Sept 28.
