Mumbai skipper Ajit Agarkar, who makes a comeback to the side after missing the last three games due to injury, said today's Ranji tie against Punjab at the Wankhede Stadium will be crucial considering the teams progression to the knockout stage.

“We are third in the group and we still have to play the two teams who are ahead of us. I don’t think we are going to get too many seaming tracks when we travel away from Mumbai, or (even) a turner.

We have seen the scores in Rajkot and I don’t expect much there (against Saurashtra). We have got another game in Indore (against Madhya Pradesh), that is why this game is even more important,” said Agarkar.

Punjab are leading the points table with 29 points from five games while, Mumbai have 10 points from four matches.
