Ajinkya Rahane was named captain of Mumbai for the first four games of the upcoming Vijay Hazare Trophy in Bangalore.
TOI had earlier reported that Rahane is slated to play the One-day tournament. “We’ve got the India vice-captain (Rahane) playing this time (in Vijay Hazare) for Mumbai, which hasn’t happened in the last few years. We’re quite happy that he’s available. Shreyas is the India A captain. So, it’s not about removing anyone. We’ll take a call (on Mumbai captaincy for the Ranji Trophy) seeing who’s available at that point in time,” Agarkar had told TOI.
Mumbai squad: Ajinkay Rahane (c), Shreyas Iyer, Prithvi Shaw, Jay Bista, Suryakumar Yadav, Siddhesh Lad, Aditya Tare, Eknath Kerkar, Shivam Dubey, Akash Parkar, Dhawal Kulkarni, Shams Mulani, Vijay Gohil, Tushar Deshpande, Roston Dias
