"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 for their support in helping us make this transition seamless at such short notice," the franchise said in a statement.

Thirteen IPL matches in Maharashtra were shifted out after Bombay High Court's order owing to the severe water crisis in the state.

As per the court order, no matches will be held in Mumbai, Pune and Nagpur after 30 April due to the drought conditions.

Because of this, Mumbai Indians have chosen Jaipur as their 'home' venue, while Rising Pune Supergiants have picked Visakhapatnam as alternate base.

Bangalore will to host the final of the event on 29 May.
