In the pre-quarterfinals (PQF) match, Kerala, Gujarat, Maharashtra, and Bengal will compete for the two spots in the quarterfinals to join the remaining 6 teams in the quarter final stage.

Meanwhile, Mumbai, Tamil Nadu, Haryana, Rajasthan, Vidarbha, and Karnataka have already secured their spots in the quarterfinals (QF), scheduled to take place on December 11.

The semi-finals (SF) are scheduled for December 13 and 14, followed by the 2023-24 Vijay Hazare Trophy final set to take place on December 16, 2023.

Why didn’t Kerala directly qualify for the quarterfinals despite topping the group?

Kerala and Mumbai: Before Tuesday’s matches, Mumbai and Kerala were tied with 20 points, hoping for a direct entry into the quarterfinals with a victory. Unfortunately, both teams faced defeats on Tuesday—Mumbai lost by 86 runs to Odisha (following their Sunday loss to Tripura), and Kerala lost by 18 runs to Railways. Despite sharing the same point total, Mumbai secured a higher rank than Kerala due to their head-to-head performance during the league stage.

Bengal and Tamil Nadu: Tamil Nadu secured a spot in the quarters by defeating Nagaland in under 20 overs, while Bengal’s 52-run win over Punjab ensured their pre-quarter position.

2023-24 Vijay Hazare Trophy 2023 Knockout Rules For Qualification

Lets take a look at the Vijay Hazare Trophy Format 2023 outlined below:

  • Groups: The teams are split into five groups. The best two from each group go to the knockout rounds.
  • Prior to Quarterfinals (Pre Quater-finals): There will be two pre-quarterfinals involving four teams, competing for two quarterfinal spots to reach a total of 8 teams.
  • Direct to Quarterfinals: The teams leading in each group will directly secure a spot in the quarterfinals. Their ranking, ranging from 1 to 5, will be determined based on points, wins, or Net Run Rate (NRR).
  • Second-Placed Teams (ranked 6 to 8): The team in the second position, ranked 6th, will directly advance to the quarterfinals, while the teams ranked 7th to 10th will need to compete in the pre-quarterfinals for two spots in the quarterfinals.
  • Tiebreakers: If two teams have the same points, the one with more wins gets a higher rank. If wins are equal, their head-to-head result from the league stage decides. If that’s also a tie, the team with a better Net Run Rate (NRR) goes higher.
