The Ajinkya Rahane-led Mumbai team, who are fighting for a place in the Ranji Trophy knockouts from the Elite Group 'B', have been dealt a big blow in their do-or-die clash against Maharashtra starting at the Brabourne Stadium today. 


In-form batsman Sarfaraz Khan will not play this crucial game as he has not recovered from temperature and weakness.



Sarfaraz has scored 556 runs this season, which includes a century in the first innings against Delhi in the last match which Mumbai lost by eight wickets.
