Agarkar makes himself unavailable for Saurashtra match

December 03, 2011 18:57 IST

In the eye of storm for returning home after being excluded from playing XI against Orissa, veteran pacer Ajit Agarkar has made himself unavailable for Mumbai's next encounter against Saurashtra at Rajkot starting from December 6.

India's pace spearhead Zaheer Khan will play his second first-class game after recovering from his ankle surgery.

As far as Agarkar is concerned, the player himself had said that he is unavailable, a Mumbai Cricket Association official informed.

Agarkar returned home after feeling humiliated when he was told that Dhawal Kulkarni and Aavishkar Salvi has been preferred over him in the playing XI.

Agarkar also got support from Zaheer who said that that situation could have been handled better with proper communication.

Kshemal Waingankar will replace Agarkar while Akhil Herwadkar will be replaced by Sushant Marathe.
