Shreyas Iyer has been nominated to lead Mumbai in the Super League stage of the Syed Mushtaq Ali trophy, which begins in Indore on Friday.

On Wednesday, it was reported that Mumbai will miss the services of its skipper Ajinkya Rahane in the Super League stage of the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 tournament as the star batsman is recovering from niggles.

According to Mumbai’s chairman of selectors, Ajit Agarkar, Rahane had “pushed through” the group stage but he needed rest to recover.

Mumbai and Railways were the two teams that qualified from Group C. Co-incidentally Mumbai played all its league matches in Indore.

Young prodigy Prithvi Shaw, Siddesh Lad, Jay Bista and the experienced duo of Aditya Tare and Surya Kumar Yadav have been named in the 15-member Mumbai squad announced on the MCA website.

The bowling attack will be spearheaded by pacer Dhawal Kulkarni and comprises Shardul Thakur, Tushar Deshpande, Royston Dias and Akash Parkar along with spinners Dhurmil Matkar and Shams Mulani.

On Friday, Mumbai take on Karnataka in their first game at the Holkar stadium.
