Aggressive batsman 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.

Senior batsman Ajinkya Rahane had led Mumbai in the league stage of the domestic T20 tournament, but “he is not available for the knock-out stage”, a source in the Mumbai Cricket Association said, ruling out reports that the Test specialist was carrying a niggle.

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.
