Young opener Yashasvi Jaiswal is fit and available for selection for Mumbai’s do-or-die last Ranji Trophy match against Maharashtra, which starts on Tuesday, January 24, at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai. Mumbai’s team will benefit from Jaiswal’s comeback as he consistently contributes to their success.

The left-handed batter missed the last two matches against Assam and Delhi due to acute gastroenteritis. Jaiswal, who scored an unbeaten 66 in the second innings against Tamil Nadu, complained of illness and dehydration on Friday, January 6; however, he resumed his innings. The 21-year-old has scored 301 runs in four games this season.

Mumbai Need Someone To Provide A Good Start To Their Innings

According to a Times of India report, Yashaswi Jaiswal cleared the fitness test and is fit to play Mumbai’s final Ranji Trophy match against Maharashtra. He has been included in the squad and will open with Divyansh Saxena, who received his maiden Ranji Trophy call-up, replacing Musheer Khan in the Mumbai squad.

“The fitness test reports of Yashasvi are ok. He is fit to play as per the Mumbai team’s doctor, Parteki and trainer Vishal Chitrakar. And hence the selectors have agreed mutually to add Yashasvi in the squad.”

“Musheer has been asked to play the U-25 team’s next match, which starts from Sunday. He got five innings, but couldn’t manage to capitalize on his chances. Divyaansh scored 250 against Saurashtra for the U-25 team against Saurashtra in the Col CK Nayudu Trophy recently. That kind of form can’t be ignored. With Prithvi (Shaw) not available (he will be with the Indian T20 side for the home series against New Zealand), Mumbai need someone to provide them with a good start to their innings.”

Mumbai lost their previous Ranji Trophy league match against Delhi by eight wickets on Friday. They have 23 points after six games, but to have any chance of making the knockout rounds, they need to at least beat Maharashtra with a first-innings lead.

Mumbai Squad For Final Game

Ajinkya Rahane (C), Tanush Kotian, Hardik Tamore (WK), Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sarfaraz Khan, Tushar Deshpande, Shams Mulani, Armaan Jaffer, Shashank Attarde, Mohit Awasthi, Divyaansh Saxena, Royston Dias, Prasad Pawar, Suved Parkar, Siddharth Raut, Dhrumil Matkar, Deepak Shetty.
