Mayank Agarwal added to India squad for England Test as standby for Covid-hit Rohit Sharma

Written by Rohit Pawar

Mayank Agarwal has been called up to join the India squad for the rescheduled fifth Test match against England in Edgbaston starting July 1. With Rohit Sharma down with Covid-19, Agarwal is expected to be a stand-by opener in case the India captain fails to recover in time.

With Rohit getting struck by Covid days ahead of the crucial Edgbaston Test and KL Rahul already nursing a groin injury, India are short of openers with only Shubman Gill ready available. If needed, Mayank can immediately be part of the Playing XI with no quarantine needed in England.
