The Vijay Hazare Trophy has seen numerous changes to its fixture formats just like the other domestic cricket championships. Till the 2014-15 season, the 28 participating teams used to be divided into five zones – North, South, East, West and Central. The group or the zonal stage was then followed by the knockout stage of the tournament.
The current format, however, divides the 38 teams into five Elite Groups having six teams each and one Plate Group having the remaining eight teams. A round robin fixture is conducted within these groups wherein the table toppers of the five elite groups secure their spots in the quarterfinals and the second positioned teams in the five elite groups and the topper of the plate group contest for the remaining three spots in the preliminary quarterfinals. A knockout stage from here on determines the winner of the championship.
