Ranji Trophy 2017/18: Shreyas Iyer Added To Mumbai Squad, Rahane, Shardul Retained
Mumbai Ranji Trophy team is all set to retain the services star player Ajinkya Rahane and pacer Shardul Thakur for their next contest against Baroda, which will be played at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Shreyas Iyer has also been added to the side for the iconic Ranji contest.
The 41-time champion side will miss out on the services of Rohit Sharma, who is a member of the Indian team in the Test series against Sri Lanka. Many players, including Rahane, are a member of the Test side but they will turn up to their states, but Rohit decided not to play the Ranji game. Surely, the step has been taken considering the fact that Indian team has been playing on the continuous basis and there is little time left for rest.

Same is the case with Indian skipper Virat Kohli, who could have turned up for Delhi but busy schedule meant that there was no rest time for international players.
Meanwhile, Mumbai will again face a selelcton conundrum at the top order. Prithvi Shaw has sealed his place at number one position, and again, Akhil Herwardkar might be retained for the number 2 spot. This would mean that Jay Bista will again warm the bench. Herwadkar could just score 17 runs in the previous game but his century in the second contest of the season could back his case.
This contest against Baroda will be the 500th game for Mumbai Ranji team. The Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) will felicitate their former captains at an event at Bandra Kurla Complex on November 9 to commemorate the occasion.
Mumbai squad: Aditya Tare (Captain), Surya Kumar Yadav (Vice Captain), Ajinkya Rahane, Akhil Herwadkar, Shreyas Iyer, Prithvi Shaw, Siddhesh Lad, Abhishek Nayar, Vijay Gohil, Sufiyan Shaikh, Akash Parkar, Dhawal Kulkarni, Shardul Thakur, Aditya Dhumal, Royston Dias, Jay Bista.
