Interestingly Chennai who were supposed to host the finals, is now only hosting the first play-off 1st qualifier on 7th May. They could not provide solution to their 3 closing stands at Chidambaram Stadium before the stipulated date of 12th May. The other two play-off games will be played at Vishakapatnam on 8th and 10th May.
Surprisingly ACA-VDCA stadium at Visakhapatnam had only one domestic match played this Indian season!. It was a Ranji match played on Dec 22-2018 between Andhra Pradesh v Bengal. The match was drawn, with last two innings was going at 5.75 R/o. Other than this game, there was no limited over tournaments played(Deodhar Trophy or Syed Mushtaq Ali) here. One hope the surface will keep balance between bat and ball.

Last year at end of 40 games – 485 wickets were lost @ 6.06 wkts/Inn.
