Shaw, Rahane Boost For Mumbai in Vijay Hazare Semis

Mumbai: Formidable Mumbai got a major boost for the crucial semi-final of the Vijay Hazare Trophy with the availability of three top players, two of whom missed the whole or part of the league phase.

Rohit Sharma, teenage sensation Prithvi Shaw and seasoned batsman Ajinkya Rahane are the three batsmen who will turn out for Mumbai in the semis.

Of these, Sharma, who played in the quarter-finals of the national ODI tournament, will be available for at least the semis along with Shaw and Rahane, who both featured in the victorious Test squad against the West Indies.

Mumbai's chief selector and former India pacer Ajit Agarkar confirmed that all the three players were available to play in the semis.

Mumbai crushed Bihar by nine wickets in a lop-sided affair in the quarter-finals to make it to the semis. Shaw had played in the initial part of the tournament for the domestic giants before making a spectacular debut in the Test series against the Windies in which he picked up the Man of the Series award too.

The semi-finals of the tournament will be played on October 17 and 18. Mumbai's opponents will be decided after the other two semi-finals conclude later in the day.
