The 2024/25 Indian domestic season is set to begin later this year: here is all the information on the schedule for this year, as released by the BCCI on Friday.

This year, the men's season gets underway on September 5, with the Duleep Trophy. The inter-zonal tournament was not played for three years prior to 2022 but since its return, both finals have been contested by West Zone and South Zone, with each side winning once. The Irani Cup, traditional curtain-raiser for the Ranji Trophy, will begin on October 1.

The women's seniors' domestic season starts on October 17, with the Senior Women's T20 Trophy. Most of the competitions are set to end by January, with the exception of the Multi Day Challenger Trophy which will take place from March 18 to April 1.
