The season starts with women's and men's U-19 one dayers (Vinoo Mankad) starting September 20 and it would be followed by U-19 challenger trophy for both women and men starting October 25 and 26th respectively.

The U-25 (State A) One dayers will be held from November 9 to December 10 while the CK Nayudu Trophy (also U-25 from previous year's U-23) will start from January 6.
