A case was filed against CSK after IPL ticket sale irregularities

Franchise Chennai Super Kings led by MS Dhoni could face big problems as a local-based advocate has filed a case against CSK, BCCI, and Tamil Nadu Cricket Association over irregularities in ticket sales on May 17. The case has been registered before the Chennai Civil Court following a huge drama surrounding black market sales for CSK’s seven home games.

Both CSK and its management have been facing a lot of criticism from the local public and other parts of India for the unavailability of tickets at the counter and online.

According to Ashok Chakravarthy, "Today I have filed a case against the Chennai Super Kings, the BCCI, and the TNCA over irregularities in ticket sales leading to a black ticket market and suspicious online ticket sales in the current ongoing IPL tournament being held in MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai."

Apparently, fans are disappointed because lower-level tickets, which usually cost around 1,500 to 2000 rupees, are reportedly being sold for 8,000 rupees. The rise in prices for the playoffs is because of MS Dhoni’s likely retirement from the IPL. A temporary stoppage of ticket sales for the playoffs at Chepauk is also to be discussed during the case. "I also prayed before the court for an interim stay on ticket sales for the playoffs and qualifier to be held in Chennai next week. And to provide the online ticket booking log of the previous matches held in Chennai,"
