Mumbai Cricket Association has named a 30-man probables list for this season’s Ranji Trophy. The big news is the inclusion of a 14-year-old by the name Arman Jaffer. The teenager happens to be the nephew of India discard Wasim Jaffer.
Veteran fast bowler Zaheer Khan has been omitted by Ranji Champions Mumbai from their Irani Cup match on fitness grounds. Zaheer Khan, who had sustained a calf muscle injury during the Ranji season has been recommended three weeks rest.
That Mumbai won the most prestigious Indian domestic tournament for the 40th time wasn’t surprising. The manner in which they fought throughout the series to lay their hands on the trophy though was outright inspiring.
