Zaheer to lead Mumbai in Ranji QF

The veteran pacer, who recently played two Tests against South Africa, led the Mumbai side admirably in four games before joining the Indian team in the Rainbow Nation.

The 40-times Ranji Trophy champions also received further boost after all-rounder Abhishek Nayar returned to the team after missing out a couple of games due to injury.

However Ajinkya Rahane and Rohit Sharma aren’t part of the 15-member squad that will take on Maharashtra at the Wankhede Stadium.

Mumbai squad: Zaheer Khan, Wasim Jaffer, Abhishek Nayar, Aditya Tare, Kaustubh Pawar, Suryakumar Yadav, Vishal Dabholkar, Javed Khan, Shardul Thakur, Iqbal Abdullah, Sagar Kerakar, Vinit Indulkar, Nikhil Patil (Jr), Sarvesh Damle, Saurabh Netravalkar
