The tournament will be organized in 6 Cities of India, namely Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Bangalore, Kolkata, and Ahmedabad. The rest of the venues like Hyderabad, Rajasthan, and Punjab will not play at their venues.

The decision to host in limited venues was due to the strict bio-bubble protocols that need to be followed while playing in the tournament.
