About Vijay Hazare Trophy

The Vijay Hazare Trophy is also known as the Ranji One Day Trophy.

It was started in 2002–03 as a limited-overs cricket domestic competition involving state teams from the Ranji Trophy plates.

From the tournament’s inaugural edition during the 1993–94 season through to the 2001–02 season, no finals were held, and teams consequently played only within their zones, with no overall winner named.
