The Tamil Nadu government bouncer to the IPL organisers has asked them to withdraw all Sri Lankan players, umpires and support staff from the participating teams.

Failing this, the state government will not allow the matches featuring Sri Lankan nationals to take place in Chennai owing to a groundswell of emotions against Sri Lanka on the Tamils issue.

In a official letter to the prime minister, Manmohan Singh, Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa urged him to advise the BCCI to prevail upon the IPL organisers not to allow Sri Lankan players, officials, umpires and support staff to take part in the tournament in Tamil Nadu.
