Mumbai: Former champions Mumbai would be led by middle-order batsman Suryakumar Yadav in their Ranji Trophy season opener against Jammu and Kashmir at the Wankhede Stadium here from December 7-10.

Mumbai, looking to regain the crown after one year, have dropped promising youngster Sarfaraz Khan, who made his first class debut last year, from the squad for their opening four-day game.

The 40-time champions have opted for a few newcomers -- medium pacers Badre Alam and Kevin Almeida, off spinner Akshay Girap and batsman Shreyas Iyer.

Mumbai would be playing three out of their seven Group A league games at home this season - against J and K - which would be the teams' first-ever clash -- followed by matches against Madhya Pradesh (January 5-8, 2015) and Karnataka (February 6-9).

The squad: Suryakumar Yadav (Captain), Abhishek Nayar (Vice-Captain), Wasim Jaffer, Dhawal Kulkarni, Aditya Tare, Bravish Shetty, Kaustubh Pawar, Shreyas Iyer, Iqbal Abdullah, Vishal Dabholkar, Shardul Thakur, Javed Khan, Badre Alam, Kevin Almeida, Akshay Girap.
