The Colombo Kings and the Dambulla Viiking have been eliminated from the tournament because of the franchise’s financial crises and then two new T20 clubs have taken part in place of them. Due to the change in ownership, Dambulla Viiking got the new name as Dambulla Giants, Jaffna Stallions replaced by Jaffna Kings, Kandy Tuskers adopted a new name Kandy Warriors and Colombo Kings have become Colombo Stars.

The tournament comprises league stage T20 matches and then a playoff round, all the league matches will be played at the R.Premadasa Stadium, Colombo and the playoff round will be held at Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium, Hambantota from 20 December 2021.
