Arjun Tendulkar, son of Sachin Tendulkar, has earned his maiden Ranji Trophy call-up while Prithvi Shaw will lead Mumbai in the upcoming Ranji Trophy season as Mumbai announced a 20-member squad for the first two matches.
Arjun Tendulkar played a couple of T20s for Mumbai last season in Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy but this is the first time he will be part of the red-ball squad. He was also part of the Mumbai Indians squad last season. Though he missed the UAE leg due to injury.
41-times Ranji Trophy champions hadn’t had a great start in the domestic season as they were knocked out in the group stage in both Syed Mushtaq Trophy and Vijay Hazare Trophy. In Vijay Hazare Trophy they finished last in their group, winning just one game out of 5.
The senior selection committee of Mumbai Cricket association consisting Salil Ankola, Gulam Parkar, Sunil More, Prasad Desai and Anand Yalvigi, have decided to go with youth as most of the senior players will be busy with their commitments for India.
