The newly formed Mumbai selection committee, led by former Indian cricketer Raju Kulkarni, on Friday named 35 likely players, including big names such as Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav for an off-season training camp to be held in Mumbai next week. Besides India Captain Rohit and Suryakumar, the list also includes Ajinkya Rahane and Shardul Thakur. But their participation in the camp is unlikely as they are currently in England for the World Test Championship final against Australia, which kicks off at The Oval on 7 June.
Shreyas Iyer, who missed the entire IPL due to a lower back injury and is currently recovering from surgery in mid-April, has also been named to the camp.
The BCCI had announced in a press release that Iyer, who will also miss the WTC final, would report to the National Cricket Academy for rehabilitation two weeks after his surgery. The list released by the Mumbai selection committee includes senior fast bowler Dhawal Kulkarni, all-rounder Shivan Dube, who had a great IPL for champions Chennai Super Kings, batting mainstay Sarfaraz Khan and Prithvi Shaw.
Right-arm fast bowler Siddharth Raut, who played a few games for the 41-time Ranji Trophy champion last season, has been dropped.
Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) President Amol Kale, Vice President Sanjay Naik, Secretary Ajinkya Naik, Co-Secretary Deepak Patil and members of the top council hosted the Cricket Matters Advisory on Thursday evening which was also attended by former player Milind Rege, Cricket Improvement Committee (CIC) Chairman Lalchand Rajput among others at Wankhede Stadium.
At the meeting here, the upcoming cricket season was discussed.
