What is the format of Vijay Hazare Trophy 2019/20?

In comparison to previous season's 37 teams, Vijay Hazare Trophy 2019-20 will feature 38 teams, but the format will remain the same. Each group will follow the round-robin format in the league phase. The top five teams from Group A and B combined, based on their points, will qualify for the quarter-final round. These five teams will be joined by two teams from Group C and the table topper of Group D in the knockout round.

Who are the big names in the tournament?

For players like Rishabh Pant, Ambati Rayudu, KL Rahul and the KulCha combination this domestic tournament provides a perfect opportunity to once again prove their worth in the limited-overs format.

Pant will be in action for the Delhi side, but only for the first few matches after which he will depart for the Test series against South Africa. The young wicketkeeper-batsman has been the cynosure of Indian cricket for his dipping form in limited-overs cricket regardless of the series and hence the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2019/20 will provide Pant an ideal ground to hit runs and boost his morale before the Bangladesh T20I series at home in November. He has to keep in mind that the selection committee have already started grooming back-up players for his spot, hence competition for the wicketkeeping spot in limited-overs format is slowly shaping up. The Delhi squad will also feature Navdeep Saini and Shikhar Dhawan.


For Rahul, who will be available for the entire course of the tournament, he will hope to score runs and prove his worth in India's limited-overs setup after being axed from the Test squad against South Africa. Although he remains to be part of India's ODI and T20I squad, fewer opportunities have come his way despite his decent form in World Cup 2019. He will play as Karnataka's vice-captain and will serve as deputy to Manish Pandey who too will look to make the most of the tournament to cement his place in India's middle-order lineup.

Two other players looking to script a comeback in the limited-overs setup are Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal. The two have not been part of India's limited-overs squad since World Cup 2019 with skipper Virat Kohli looking for batting depth in the lower order.

Among the other big names who will be part of the tournament, Hanuma Vihari will feature as Andhra's skipper for the first few games before he leaves for India's Test series against South Africa. Krunal Pandya will be part of Baroda. Kedar Jadhav will play for Maharashtra, Shreyas Iyer will captain Mumbai, Umesh Yadav will feature in Vidarbha side while Khaleel Ahmed and the Chahar cousins will play for Rajasthan. Meanwhile, Tamil Nadu will feature Dinesh Karthik, Vijay Shankar, Murali Vijay, and Washington Sundar.

Here's how the groups are divided:

Elite Group A in Bengaluru from September 24 to October 13: Mumbai, Saurashtra, Andhra, Chhattisgarh, Hyderabad, Karnataka, Jharkhand, Goa, Kerala

Elite Group B in Vadodara from September 24 to October 13: Delhi, Vidarbha, Maharashtra, Himachal Pradesh, Baroda, Odisha, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Punjab
