The Challenger Trophy, a day-night limited-overs tournament featuring the best talent available, was introduced by the BCCI in 1994-95. The competition features three sides - India Seniors [India Blue], India A [India Red] and India B [India Green]. For first few years the three teams were picked on merit, but the emphasis shifted to selecting three well-matched teams, a move that resulted in closer and more popular matches.
From 1998-99 the tournament was known as the N K P Salve Challenger Trophy and it is now officially called Challenger Series, for the N K P Salve Trophy.
