Three Mumbai spinners - left-armer Vishal Dabholkar, offspinner Ankush Jaiswal and part-time offspinner Akhil Herwadkar - have been reported for suspect actions. As a result, Dabholkar and Jaiswal have been omitted from Mumbai's squad for their last group match of the 2015-16 Ranji Trophy season against Gujarat, beginning on December 1, at the Wankhede Stadium.
"They have been reported by the BCCI and they will now go for rehabilitation with Mumbai bowling coach Omkar Salvi," MCA joint secretary Unmesh Khanvilkar told ESPNcricinfo. "They have already undergone testing at the Sri Ramachandra Arthroscopy and Sports Sciences Centre in Chennai."
Khanvilkar said the trio were working on their action, and would wait for an appointment from the testing centre in Chennai to get tested. He also confirmed Dabholkar and Jaiswal were set to miss at least the first half of the Vijay Hazare Trophy, the domestic 50-over competition, which begins on December 10.
Dabhokar has been Mumbai's leading wicket-taker, with 27 scalps from six games at an average of 29.11, while Jaiswal, 23, had made his debut against Madhya Pradesh and picked up five wickets in the match, including four in the first innings.
Khanvilkar said Abhishek Nayar and Dhawal Kulkarni were rested for the Gujarat fixture, and the uncapped duo of left-arm spinner Dhrumil Matkar and wicketkeeper batsman Sufiyan Shaikh were included in the squad. "Dhrumil Matkar has been doing very well at the under-23 level, and so the selectors have picked him at this level." Shaikh, meanwhile, has played two List A games and four T20s for Mumbai.
