India Tour of England: KL Rahul Replacement – Someone’s pain is other one’s gain. Mayank Agarwal will be making India comeback as a backup opener for the one-off 5th Test against England as a replacement for KL Rahul. The vice-captain has been ruled out of the England tour owing to groin injury. Rishabh Pant is all set to be named the vice-captain for the tour. Follow IND vs ENG Live Updates with InsideSport.IN.

“Mayank has been put on standby for England tour. We have asked the team management if they need a replacement for Rahul. We should get an answer by 19th. In that case, Mayank will fly to UK with the second batch. But it’s not finalised yet. Rishabh will be vice-captain,” a senior BCCI official told InsideSport.IN.

The reason why he has not been officially added to the squad yet is the number of Test matches. Since it is one-off Test and Mayank is unlikely to be picked for the limited-overs series, selectors feel it is not required as Hanuma Vihari can be a make-shift opener in case of injury to Shubman Gill.

However, as India suffered a three injuries during the last England tour, the BCCI doesn’t want to take any chances and wants to add Mayank Agarwal as a backup option.

“Look, it’s very simple. The team always has certain plans with certain players. For example, Hanuma gives strength to the middle-order and if we push him to open if god forbid Shubman gets injured, the balance will be lost. It’s important that we have options ready in adverse situations,” the BCCI official told InsideSport.
