Zaheer Khan was on Friday named Mumbai captain for the Ranji Trophy 2013-14 quarter-final match against Maharashtra at the Wankhede Stadium, starting January 8.

A report on PTI said on Thursday that Zaheer is just back from South Africa and his inclusion will boost a depleted Mumbai, who have been found struggling this season and there bowling has floundered at times.

“He has sought time till tomorrow to let us know whether he would be able to play. Our selection committee is to meet tomorrow afternoon to pick the squad and we are hoping that Zaheer will be available to play,” said Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) Joint Secretary Nitin Dalal.

The left-arm speedster played four games for Mumbai this Ranji season in which he grabbed 16 wickets before proceeding to South Africa for the two-Test series, where he claimed seven scalps, the report added.

Mumbai squad for Ranji Trophy 2013-14 quarter-final:

Zaheer Khan (c), Shardul Thakur, Wasim Jaffer, Iqbal Abdullah, Abhishek Nayar,  Sagar Kerkar, Aditya Tare, Vinit Indulkar, Kaustubh Pawar, Nikhil Patil (Jr.), Suryakumar Yadav, Sarvesh Damle, Vishal Dabholkar, Saurabh Netravalkar, Javed Khan
