Selection Round, Six contestants are selected in this round. This round was dropped in later seasons.
Toss Round, Six selected contestants from 23 districts of West Bengal and a contestant representing Team India participate in this round. Six clues are given for a single answer, from which the participants have to guess the answer. From season 4, a seventh clue had been included, which was presented after the participants finalized their guess in the sixth clue. The participants' 'runs' are deducted if their guess is wrong, while they are awarded points if their guess is correct. The number of runs awarded or deducted depends on the number of clues the contestant used to finalize his/her guess. In the later seasons, this round has got tougher with the clue being vague and the answers unexpected. In season 8, participants need to write their guesses from the first clue but without telling anyone, which is revealed at the end before announcing the seventh clue i.e., the answer.
Powerplay Round, All six contestants play this round. Random questions of nine people are selected to ask the contestants. If they are able to answer without taking options, they get 12 runs.

A two-run question includes two options, a four-run question has three options, while a six-run question has four options.
- If any other contestant thinks that the contestant's answer is wrong, he/she can challenge that particular contestant, receiving double runs if the answer is correct, but losing double runs if the answer is wrong. One contestant is eliminated at the end of this round.This round was renamed as Bouncer Round in season 7.
Cover Drive Round, Here, the contestants are given some audio-visual questions to answer. Questions range from one to four runs (score). The contestants are questioned, without options, on either a video or an audio clip, depending on their choice. The help and challenge options are also available here. This round is quite similar to the Power Play round; only the question pattern is different.
Googly/Doosra Round, The Googly and Doosra round is quite similar to the type of bowling in cricket it is named after. As the bowler surprises the batsman with such a delivery, the contestants are also baffled by riddles or rebus puzzles. This is perhaps the hardest round in the game, but certainly the most enjoyable. Each contestant can choose from googly and doosra. As a doosra question is more difficult, a contestant gets 12 points for the right answer and minus 12 points for the wrong answer. A googly question has six points. A contestant gets six points for the right answer and minus six points for the wrong answer. Others cannot challenge the contestant (who is asked the question) in this tricky round.
Slog Over Round, This round was called Full Toss Round in season 7. The remaining three contestants are asked 12 questions. Previously (before season 5) the number of questions was 18. The fastest one to press the buzzer after the question is asked gets to answer the particular question. One who manages to answer consecutive three questions correctly gets a 'free hit' which means that there will be no negative marking for him in the question. Questions that all the contestants have failed to answer are asked to the Runners' Bench at random. One contestant is eliminated.
Bapi Bari Jaa, The remaining duo is head-to-head in this final obstacle to victory. The contestants are told to choose from six subjects alternatively, from which they will be asked questions. Similar to the Bouncer round, one can challenge the other. If they decide to challenge in this round, their answers are kept unknown to each other until they have finalized them.
