Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy is the Indian domestic T20 championship organised every year by BCCI. All the teams that take part in Ranji Trophy feature in this tournament as well. It is named after former Indian Test cricketer, Syed Mushtaq Ali. The trophy was inaugurated back in the 2006-07 season with 27 Ranji teams divided in 5 Zones. Initially, it was started with the name Inter-State T20 Championship which was later renamed and relaunched as the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.

The format of the tournament has constantly changed over the years. In the earlier seasons, winners and runners-up of each zone qualified for the knockout stage. In the 2012-13 season, the knockout stage was replaced with a Super League. In this, zonal winners and runners-up were divided into 2 groups and the winners of each group clashed in the final.

In June 2016, BCCI decided to conduct the trophy in a zonal-based competition but reverted to the earlier format from next season. The latest format consists of 38 teams divided into six groups. In this, five are elite groups comprising six teams each, and one plate group with eight teams. A total of six sides from the top-ranked teams in each group make it to the knockout stage. Along with this, the top 2 ranked teams from the 5 elite groups join to make a total of 8 teams.
