Tare, who was the last Ranji Trophy-winning Mumbai captain, was not selected for Mumbai’s pre-season training camp. Having been dropped from Mumbai’s white-ball camps, Tare, who was part of Mumbai Indians’ squad in IPL 2022, was looking out for other options to have more game time. He has played 80 first-class matches and 73 List A matches, and he was part of Mumbai’s team which reached the Ranji Trophy finals earlier in the year. His season was cut short due to an injury in the quarter-final as well.

“It’s difficult to put into words how I feel about moving on from Mumbai. Since I was about 16 years when I got my first Mumbai cap (under-17) until today at the ripe age of 34 I’ve enjoyed myself, played with absolute pride and lived my dream of being a Mumbai player,” Aditya Tare said in a statement. “I won’t lie, it did hurt a bit the way things ended. But it’s time for new challenges, new environment and I am excited for this new phase in my playing career with so much yet to offer.”
