Bhubaneswar: The 24-year-old Subhranshu Senapati will lead Odisha in the upcoming Vijay Hazare Trophy meet in Mumbai.

Senior selection committee chairman Pravanjan Mullick announced the 21-member squad here on Thursday.

The entire squad and members of support staff will undergo a quarantine period from December 3 to 5 according to latest norms of the BCCI. They will have two practice sessions on December 6 and and 7.
