- Indian opener got injured just before the start of the series, a big crisis in front of Team India
- Now who will replace Mayank Agarwal, the names of three players are in discussion
Indian opener Mayank Agarwal was ruled out of the opening Test against England, starting Wednesday, after a short ball hit his teammate Mohammad Siraj on the head during a practice session. Siraj is the fastest bowler among the Indian bowlers who have gone to England tour. During practice, Mayank took his eyes off his shot ball, after which the ball hit the helmet in the back of his head. Now the question is who will be included in the team instead of Mayank Agarwal.
When Indian Test vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane was asked about Mayank’s injury, he said that Mayank has suffered a head injury. Rahane said, “Mayank Agarwal has a head injury. The medical team is monitoring them. All the other players are fit.” Mayank was feeling a little uncomfortable after opening the helmet and then physio Nitin Patel sat on the ground with him. He then went out of the net with Patel with his hand on the back of his head. It is expected that he will have to undergo a mandatory ‘concussion’ test before being cleared to play Test matches.
Who will replace Mayank now?
In the absence of Mayank Agarwal, Lokesh Rahul can get a chance as an opener. Rahul has opened the innings in most of the Test matches but these days he prefers to play in the middle-order. Another option for the opening batsman in the team is Abhimanyu Easwaran of Bengal. However, Hanuma Vihari can also get a chance in the team as an opener, who can open the innings like Australia. Vihari also bowls off-spin and if he joins the team as an opener, all-rounder pacer Shardul Thakur can also be picked in the last 11.
By the way, Lokesh Rahul has always been a favorite in Virat Kohli’s eyes and Rahul also shone in the recent warm-up match against County Select XI in Durham.
In that match, Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane were out due to minor injuries, in such a situation, Rahul came on the field and scored a brilliant century and once again made a claim to return to the Test team.
