“Rahane hasn’t played any cricket of late and hence straightaway the selectors won’t put him in India A with lot of performers waiting. I think he will play for West Zone in Duleep Trophy and take it from thereon,” a senior BCCI official privy to developments told PTI on conditions of anonymity.

It is understood that Rahane is not in the scheme of things for the Bangladesh tour in December but a good Ranji Trophy season might just bring him back in the mix for the big home series against Australia. It has also been learnt that Rahane has committed to play a full season for Mumbai in the domestic season and will lead the side.

The Duleep Trophy is marking a return this year with the Indian domestic calendar returning to its usual for the first time since COVID-19.
