In a relief to the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association,Supreme Court directs de-sealing of three stands in Chennai’s Chepauk stadium for today’s IPL match.

TNCA assures SC the three stands with 12,000 seats will not be used in any other match without its permission.

Earlier,TNCA had challenged Chennai Corporation’s action of sealing three stands –I,J and K on the ground that they had been constructed without prior permission from the authorities concerned.

Seeking de-sealing of three stands,TNCA submitted that the three sealed stands were part of renovation work going on in the stadium and six stands have already been allowed by the Corporation.

It also submitted that stands be de-sealed as the tickets have already been sold for tomorrow’s IPL match to be played in the stadium,which has this year already conducted seven IPL matches without any hitch.
