"It is confirmed that all the matches will be shifted out from there," Sundar Raman, COO of the Indian Premier League told the Times of India.

The decision to move all of the Chargers games follows the IPL's decision to move the opening game of IPL 3.0 from Hyderabad because of the security fears.

"We will have the gala dinner and the opening ceremony along with the first match. There will be guests from all over and we can't take a chance with that," he said.
