Domestic giants, Mumbai will be eyeing their first 'home' win of the season when they take on Uttar Pradesh in their Elite Group B Ranji Trophy at the Wankhede Stadium here from Sunday. <p></p> <p></p>Mumbai will continue to miss the services of regular skipper Suryakumar Yadav and young prodigy Prithvi Shaw, who are with India A squad in New Zealand. <p></p> <p></p>Also, Shreyas Iyer, all-rounder Shivam Dube and pacer Shardul Thakur are also unavailable for the game, as they are on national duty. <p></p> <p></p>Hence, although the task gets tougher, Mumbai's morale should be high, as they were able to grab crucial three points against a full-strength Tamil Nadu team, which had the likes of Abhinav Mukund, Dinesh Karthik and ace off-spinner R Ashwin. <p></p> <p></p>This season has been a roller coaster ride for Mumbai. <p></p> <p></p>They began the campaign with a huge 309 run victory against Baroda and then were thrashed by Railways by 10 wickets at Wankhede Stadium and later were convincingly beaten by arch-rivals Karnataka at the BKC. <p></p> <p></p>They then took the first innings lead against Tamil Nadu at Chepauk. <p></p> <p></p>The onus will be again on experienced batsman-keeper Aditya Tare to lead from the front. <p></p> <p></p>But young guns like Bhupen Lalwani could see the game as an opportunity to cement their spots in the side. <p></p> <p></p>Mumbai spin duo of Shams Mulani and off-spinner Shashank Attarde have been in good form and would be more than eager to put up a strong show. <p></p> <p></p>Mumbai also has a decent pace attack, which can be effective in the morning hours. <p></p> <p></p>On the other hand, Uttar Pradesh has played five games so far and have drawn four, while winning just one versus Saurashtra at Rajkot, where they recorded a victory by an innings and 72 runs. <p></p> <p></p>The visitors would aim to give a tough fight to Mumbai, who are the favourites to record season's second outright win. <p></p> <p></p>Other Elite 'Group B' Games: At Indore: Madhya Pradesh versus Saurashtra. <p></p> <p></p>At Dharamshala: Himachal Pradesh versus Baroda. <p></p> <p></p>At Chennai: Tamil Nadu versus Railways.
