Mumbai: Feb 24, 2014

 

Middle-order batsman Suryakumar Yadav would be leading Mumbai in the West Zone One-Day league, to be held from February 27 to March 3 at Rajkot.

 

The tournament would mark the return to action for Mumbai speedster Dhawal Kulkarni, who was unavailable due to injury for more than two months and missed the latter phase of the Ranji Trophy.

 

However, first choice stumper Aditya Tare and steady middle-order batsmen Hiken Shah and Sidhesh Lad would miss the tournament because they are injured, said Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) secretary Nitin Dalal.

 

Mumbai are to take on Baroda on the first day of the tournament followed by matches against Gujarat (February 28), Saurashtra (March 2) and Maharashtra (March 3).

 

Squad:

 

Suryakumar Yadav (c), Abhishek Nayar, Dhawal Kulkarni, Sushant Marathe, Iqbal Abdullah, Vishal Dabholkar, Shardul Thakur, Javed Khan, Sagar Kerkar, Shoaib Shaikh, Bravish Shetty, Saurabh Netravalkar, Siddharth Chitnis, Parag Khanapurkar, Sujit Nayak.
