Surya is in the India A squad which will go to New Zealand on 10 January, and hence, is unavailable for few games.

Similarly, young prodigy Prithvi Shaw, who sustained injury to his left-shoulder in the game against Karnataka, is not available as he is under rehab at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru.

Also Shardul Thakur, Shivam Dube and Shreyas Iyer are away on national duty. In their absence, the selectors have opted for right-handed batsman Bhupen Lalwani.

Another player, Siddhesh Lad too maintains his place in the 15-member squad, while another young batsman Sarfaraz Khan, who played a Ranji game for Mumbai against Karnataka, too has been retained.

Spinners Shashank Attarde and Shams Mulani have also retained their spots, while the pace attack will be led by Tushar Deshpande and comprises Deepak Shetty and Royston Dias.
