Bengaluru Raptors on Thursday expressed their inability to host the final and semi-finals of the upcoming Premier Badminton League (PBL) due to "unavailability" of venue.

In a series of tweets, Bengaluru Raptors made it clear that due to the unavailability of the Sree Kanteerava Indoor Stadium, they might not be able to host the scheduled matches.

The upcoming edition of the PBL is scheduled to start on January 20 when reigning world champion PV Sindhu's team Hyderabad Hunters faces Chennai Superstarz in Chennai.

A total of 24 ties will be played in 21 days in four different cities.
