Aditya Tare, the Mumbai wicketkeeper, has been ruled out of the Ranji Trophy semi-final against Uttar Pradesh due to a finger injury. Tare picked up the injury on the fourth day of the quarter-final against Uttarakhand in Bengaluru last week.
Tamore, who led Mumbai's Under-25s to a title win at the CK Nayudu Trophy in April, has so far featured in four first-class matches, the last of which came over two years ago. When he last played, Tamore featured as a specialist batter under Tare, who was then captaining the side. Opening the batting, Tamore scored a second-innings 113 in that game against Madhya Pradesh; it was his maiden first-class hundred.
The injury is a blow to Mumbai, given Tare’s experience and stature. Tare, a Ranji-Trophy-winning captain, has featured in 80 first-class matches, and is seen as a mentor to the younger group of players coming through.
Mumbai beat Uttarakhand by a record 725 runs last week to enter the Ranji semi-finals, with Tare contributing a quickfire half-century in the second innings. He also effected two dismissals in the match.
