India opener Prithvi Shaw is uncertain to play in Mumbai's Ranji Trophy opener against Railways, but could eventually make the side if he clears a fitness Test prior to the game on November 1.

A source told PTI that Shaw wasn't considered for selection, as he was still recovering from an elbow injury which he sustained during a Vijay Hazare Trophy match. Furthermore, a selector added that while at the moment he is unfit, Shaw could be added to the squad if he passes the fitness test before the game.
