Suryakumar Yadav has been reinstated as Mumbai captain for the league stage of Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, to be played in Mumbai from January 10 to 19. The selection committee, headed by former India pacer Salil Ankola, has announced a 20-member squad for the group stage after witnessing eight practice games involving four squads over the last week.

Yadav, one of Mumbai Indians’ star campaigners during its triumphant campaign in the Indian Premier League, was appointed Mumbai captain for last year’s Ranji Trophy. However, after handing over reins to Aditya Tare midway through the tournament after joining the India A squad, Yadav wasn’t reappointed when he joined the squad for the last two games.
