With the Karnataka opener set to leave with A squad led by Shubman Gill on 10 January, it is understood that BCCI had asked the state team to exempt Agarwal from the upcoming Ranji game.

However Ajinkya Rahane and Prithvi Shaw will be turning up for Mumbai even though they are also part of the A team.

While Prithvi like Agarwal will play both formats, Rahane along with Cheteshwar Pujara will be warming-up for the Test series by playing the second four-day game.

As per a report in ESPNCricinfo, Ravikumar Samarth has been recalled by Karnataka for the upcoming encounter.
