Opening batter Mayank Agarwal has been added to the Team India Test squad as a cover for captain Rohit Sharma, who is down with COVID-19. He was not a part of the original squad.

The Karnataka-based batter was slated to start as an opener on the tour of England last year, but a concussion during the net session ruled him out of the first Test.

KL Rahul was promoted to open the innings with Rohit Sharma, and the two played an important role in India’s wins at Lord’s and Oval.

Mayank played in the Test series against New Zealand and South Africa but failed with the bat. In addition, he has been found wanting against the moving ball.

He had one of the worst IPL seasons with the Punjab Kings in IPL 2022. Leading them for the first time, he scored 196 runs in 12 innings at an average of 16.33.

A section of fans was not happy with his inclusio.
