2018–19 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy

The Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy[1] is a Twenty20 cricket domestic championship in India, organized by Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), among the teams from Ranji Trophy. The 2008-09 season was the inaugural season for this trophy. It is named after a famous Indian cricketer, Syed Mushtaq Ali. In June 2016, the BCCI announced that the championship would be scrapped and replaced with a zonal-based competition.[2]


BCCI launched its own state structure in 2006-07 season with 27 Ranji teams divided in 5 Zones with the name of Inter-State T20 Championship which was renamed and relaunched as the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.

Bengal won the final against Madhya Pradesh by one run at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad.[4]

Gujarat won the trophy in 2012/13 defeating Punjab in the final by four wickets with 13 deliveries to spare.[6] After winning the toss Punjab were reduced to 20 for 4, through the bowling of Mehul Patel, Jasprit Bumrah and Rohit Dahiya.

Baroda won the 2013/14 trophy by defeating Uttar Pradesh in the final by 3 runs After reaching 116 for 1 in the 17th over, Uttar Pradesh collapsed while chasing a target of 145 and lost the match by three runs.[7][8]
