The final of the tournament is slated to take place on 10th February and this time also the event will see 34 matches being played across six venues. Every team will have an opportunity to host a home match in the opening week of the tournament.

The table toppers will play each other in Qualifier 1 before third and fourth-placed teams will clash with each other in Eliminator. The loser of Qualifier 1 and the winner of the Eliminator will then face in Qualifier 2 and the winner will book a berth in the final against the winner of Qualifier 1.
