Experienced offspinner Rakesh Dhurv has switched from Gujarat to Vidarbha. Dhurv, 33, played for Gujarat in the past two seasons after having spent a decade in Saurashtra. His two years in Gujarat had been successful ones for him, taking 36 Ranji Trophy wickets in 2012-13 and following it up with 33 wickets in the next season.

His impressive showings in 2012-13 led to a call-up to the India A side against the visiting Australians in February 2013, and the series against New Zealand A later that year. He has played 87 first-class matches, taking 245 wickets at 29.89.

Dhurv becomes the third professional player to move to Vidarbha this season, after Tamil Nadu's S Badrinath and Karnataka's Ganesh Satish.
