Summary

  • International players turning out for their state teams is always a huge plus and Mumbai are set to benefit as India’s limited-overs deputy Rohit Sharma has made himself available for the Vijay Hazare Trophy knock-out games.
  • The team will be led by Shreyas Iyer, who captained Mumbai in their last two games in the league stage,” a Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) official added.
  • Interestingly, Sunil Gavaskar had recently said that MS Dhoni too should play in the tournament as that will help the former India skipper stay in touch with the game as he no longer plays Test cricket.
  • Dhoni should be playing domestic cricket and should be playing the four-day games as well because he will help so many of the emerging players from Jharkhand,” Gavaskar told India Today.
