Opposition to IPL matches to be held in the city intensified on Monday with a pro-Tamil outfit agitating over the Cauvery issue threatening to hold protests outside the game venue on Tuesday.

The state government, on its part, put the onus on the IPL governing body for conducting the matches. The cricket board has been apprised of "our sentiments," fisheries minister D Jayakumar said. He said "it would be good" if the BCCI respected the sentiments and not conduct the match here but government would provide all support including security as per laid down guidelines.
