Mumbai star Sarfaraz Khan had to be admitted to a hospital in Ranchi, where the city’s team is competing in the Vijay Hazare Trophy. He had to stay in hospital overnight, forcing him to miss Sunday’s match, which Mumbai lost against Services.

“It is a minor but painful disease of kidney stones, which he has been suffering from for quite some time. He was in a lot of pain, because of which he had to be taken to the hospital. Now he is fine,” revealed Sarfarazova. father of Naushad Khan.

Sarfaraz, who made a match-winning 36 in the final of the recent Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy in Kolkata, missed Vijay Hazare’s team’s second match against Services at the Metallurgical and Engineering Consultant Limited Sail Stadium, Ranchi, where Mumbai failed to defend 264. Services won comfortably with eight doors.

Sarfaraz is expected to be released on Sunday evening. Team sources in Ranchi said the batsman is fine and will be available for Mumbai’s next game against national rivals Maharashtra. Sarfaraz, who was the highest run-scorer in the Ranji Trophy last year (982 runs in six matches), will also be picked for India’s November-December tour of Bangladesh in the next few days.

“Sarfaraz is expected to be fit. One night in the hospital was a precautionary exercise and we are confident of his participation in Thursday’s match,” a team official said.

Apart from Sarfaraz, the Ajinkya Rahane-led team is without two internationals, Shreyas Iyer and Shivam Dube. Iyer is with the Indian team in New Zealand, while Dube was recently injured while bowling and was declared unfit for the Vijay Hazare tournament. Khizer Dafedar was taken in his place.

After two matches, Mumbai are fourth in the elite Group E along with Maharashtra, Puducherry, Bengal, Services, Railways and Mizoram. They have four points after one win (against Bengal) and one loss and Thursday’s game against Maharashtra will be very important for the 2020 champions Vijay Hazare’s chances of qualifying for the knockout stages.

Mumbai’s other matches are against Mizoram on November 19, Puducherry on November 21 and Railways on November 23.
