Mumbai: The Rest of India team suffered a massive blow just before the start of its Irani Cup match against Mumbai as skipper Virender Sehwag was ruled out due to an upset stomach on Wednesday.

Sehwag was replaced by senior off-spinner Harbhajan Singh as captain.

The match would have been a good opportunity for the struggling Sehwag to prove his worth for the upcoming high-profile home Test series against Australia.

Rest of India were put in to bat by Mumbai captain Abhishek Nayar who is leading the side because Ajit Agarkar is missing the game due to an injury.


Rest of India: Harbhajan Singh (Capt.), Shikhar Dhawan, Murali Vijay, Manoj Tiwary, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, Wriddhiman Saha, Pragyan Ojha, Abhimanyu Mithun, S Sreesanth, Ishwar Pandey.

Mumbai: Abhishek Nayar (Capt.), Wasim Jaffer, Ajinkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma, Sachin Tendulkar, Aditya Tare, Javed Khan, Ankeet Chavan, Dhawal Kulkarni, Vishal Dabholkar, Shardul Thakur.
