May you hit upon a Mine in your quest for the Gold. Good wishes," Muzumdar wrote on the micro-blogging site.

Rasquinha was presented with a signed Mumbai team jersey. Meanwhile, the Mumbai selection committee comprising Salil Ankola, Gulam Parkar, Sunil More, Prasad Desai, and Anand Yalvigi have chosen to have a blend of youth and experience.
