Since then, the right-arm pacer is out of action.

Deshpande has also been out of action for a month.

The Ajit Agarkar-led selection panel has named the two pacers in the 15-member squad announced by the Mumbai Cricket Association on its website on Thursday.

Siddhesh Lad continues to remain the skipper.
