Kings XI Punjab has picked Dharamsala as its second home venue to host three matches next month after the games were moved out of Nagpur following a Bombay High Court order.

“We are happy to announce that Kings XI Punjab will be playing our three home games in Dharamsala. We are grateful and thankful to the HPCA (Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association) for their support in helping us make this transition seamless at such short notice,” the franchise said in a statement.
