The Bombay High Court had ordered BCCI to move all the IPL 2016 matches out of Maharashtra after April 30. Therefore, Mumbai Indians and the Rising Pune Supergiants had to opt for alternative home grounds for the rest of the tournament.

Mumbai Indians had opted for Jaipur and the Supergiants had chosen Visakhapatnam as their home grounds for the rest of the season. 

But, as soon as the Mumbai Indians decided to play their remaining home matches at Jaipur, a PIL was filed by a lawyer at the Rajasthan High Court. The Court questioned BCCI, State Government and Rajasthan Cricket Association's decision to allow them to host matches in Jaipur. The state of Rajasthan is also going through a severe drought problem, just like Maharashtra. 

According to a report in TOI, Mumbai Indians have now decided to play their remaining home matches in Visakhapatnam. The team was left in a state of confusion as they did not know where they will be playing these three home matches. 

The two-time champions are likely to settle for Visakhapatnam, where the Supergiants will also play their home games. An official announcement is yet to be made but it is expected that one will be coming on Friday.
