Barely hours after the 2019 IPL final was moved to Hyderabad’s Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, strong winds did significant damage to the stadium, blowing away a major portion of the canopy. The Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) CEO, Panduranga Murthy said after assessing the damage report, they will decide on the future course of action - according to the news website Yahoo Cricket


The final was moved out of Chennai after the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA) failed to obtain permission to operate the three closed stands. “We had to shift the matches from Chennai to Hyderabad after TNCA intimated us that they have not procured the requisite permission to open the three stands I, J and K,” Vinod Rai, the Committee of Administrators (CoA) chief, was quoted as saying by PTI .


The next match at Hyderabad is on the 29th of April while the final is scheduled to be held on May 12th.
