The group stage matches concluded in the round robin format; which means that the five top teams from each of the Elite groups will make it through to the Quarterfinal stage.
Second-placed Elite group teams and the side topping the Plate group will have to reach the last-eight stage via pre-quarterfinals.
The biggest news from the league stage of the tournament has come from the Mumbai camp. The defending champions have had a torrid season in the ongoing Vijay Hazare trophy, as the Shams Mulani-led side finished last with only a solitary win out of five matches to crash out of the tournament.
In Elite group A, Himachal Pradesh made it through to the Quarterfinal stage with 3 wins out of 5 matches. They had a better run-rate (+0.551) than second placed Vidharbha (+0.201), which means that the latter will have to clear the pre-quarterfinal stage first to make an entry to the Quarterfinals.
Similarly, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka made it through to the last eight and pre-quarterfinals respectively, from Elite Group B. In Elite Group C, Saurashtra, having won all its 5 group matches made it through to the Quarters, with Uttar Pradesh finishing second.
From Elite Group D, Kerala have managed to reach the final 8, with Madhya Pradesh to play the pre-quarterfinal fixture after finishing second.
