LPL 2020 is starting from 26th November, while the final match of the tournament will be played on 16th December. All T20 league matches will be played at the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Cricket Stadium in Hambantota. Unlike the IPL, the Sri Lankan cricket board has not hosted a qualifier and eliminator match in the Lanka Premier League, but the board has decided to hold only two semifinals, which will be between the top four teams in the mark table.
