Mumbai, the Ranji Trophy champions, will take on Pakistan's national champions Karachi next month in a four-day cricket match for the prestigious Mohammad Nissar trophy.

A Pakistan Cricket Board official confirmed that the match between the domestic cricket champions of India and Pakistan will take place from September 8 to 11 at the National stadium.

"It is a match that will also kick off Pakistan's new domestic and international cricket season," the official said.

The Karachi City Cricket Association has also announced a strong side to play against Mumbai led by Test discard, Hasan Raza.

The KCCA have also included left hander Asim Kamal in the Karachi line-up.

Karachi squad: Hasan Raza, Faisal Iqbal, Asim Kamal, Agha Sabir, Khurrum Manzoor, Asif Zakir, Saeed Bin Nasir, Athar Nawaz, Mohtasham Ali, Imran Javed, Amin-ur-Rehman, Malik Aftab, Tanvir Ahmed, Tahir Khan, Azam Hussain and Nauman Alvi.
