Events

The BCCI tinkered with the Duleep Trophy in the 2002–03 season. The original zonal teams were replaced by five new teams called Elite A, Elite B, Elite C, Plate A and Plate B. These teams were constructed from the new Elite Group and Plate Group divisions which had been introduced into the Ranji Trophy that season. However, this format lasted for only one season as it was felt that the new teams lacked a sense of identity. From the 2003–04 season, the five original zonal teams competed along with a sixth guest team which was a touring foreign team. The first guest team was England A in 2003–04.

The Indian Premier League has become very popular in India since its inaugural in 2008.

Mumbai (formerly Bombay) has continued its dominance of the domestic scene into the 21st century by winning the Ranji Trophy five times in the first decade.

Noted Indian cricketers in the 21st century include Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Rahul Dravid, Sourav Ganguly, Anil Kumble, Virender Sehwag, Sachin Tendulkar, Yuvraj Singh and Virat Kohli.

India won the inaugural ICC World Twenty20 in 2007 under the leadership of Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

India was the first Sub-continental team to win a Test match at the WACA in January 2008 against Australia.

Indian cricket team under the leadership of "Captain Cool" Mahendra Singh Dhoni also went on to win the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 and became the first team in history to win the Cup at home.
