Mumbai: Oct 11, 2012

 

Former India pacer Ajit Agarkar was on Thursday named Mumbai Ranji team captain for the first four Ranji league games, starting November 2.

 

“Ajit Agarkar has been selected as captain of Mumbai Team for the first four league matches of Ranji Trophy,” said Mumbai Cricket Association’s (MCA) joint secretary and selection panel convener Nitin Dalal.

 

Dalal did not give any particular reason for keeping Agarkar at the helm for only the first four games and not for the entire season, as is the customary practice.

 

“That’s what the selection committee panel decided today,” Dalal said.

 

The selection panel is headed by Sandeep Patil, recently elevated as the chairman of the national senior selection committee, with Abey Kuruvilla, Deepak Jadhav and Rajesh Sutar as its other members.

 

Mumbai start their Ranji campaign at home against Railways in Group A on November 2.

 

The Mumbai selectors also named Sarvesh Damle as the under-25 team captain for the entire season.

 

Mumbai would open their campaign in Col. C K Nayudu Elite Group C league against Madhya Pradesh at Indore from October 19 to 22.

 

India opener Ajinkya Rahane has been included in the team to play the first game “to gain valuable practice” ahead of the Test series against England, according to Dalal.

 

“He wanted some practice and we have included him in the under 25 team,” Dalal said. (PTI)

 

Mumbai under 25 squad: Sarvesh Damle (Capt), Ajinkya Rahane, Kaustubh Pawar, Swapnil Salvi, Bravish Shetty, Siddhesh Lad, Nikhil Patil (Jr), Aditya Tare, Neelkanth Parab, Oninder Singh, Sagar Gorivale, Javed Khan, Pratik Dabholkar, Mohammed Amir and Shardul Thakur.

 

Coach: Vilas Godbole; Manager: Deepak Patil.
