India has called Mayank Agrawal to play in the remaining test against England. Rohit Sharma, who is in isolation after testing positive for COVID-19, is still unknown to India.

They haven’t made any announcements on the captaincy switch, and it’s believed that they won’t make a decision until closer to the game while keeping an eye on Rohit’s health.

If Rohit is unable to recover on time then according to the reports Jasprit Bumrah will be the captain of India. It will be after 38 years that an Indian pacer will captain India’s test side.

If Rohit is unable to partner Shubman Gill during the Test, they could be further hindered at the top given that KL Rahul, their other regular Test opener, is already out injured.

Because there is now no need for a quarantine in England, Mayank has been called up as a standby with the potential to be available right away.

Agarwal was not included in the first selection for this Test because his most recent Test was in March against Sri Lanka.

Before a COVID-mandated break ended their visit last year, India already had a 2-1 series advantage. The last Test is supposed to start on 1st July and the match will be played in Edgbaston.

Agarwal’s recent performance hasn’t been great; in his first season leading Punjab Kings in the IPL, he only managed 196 runs at an average of 16.33 and a strike rate of 122.5. Due to Agarwal’s poor performance, former India head coach Ravi Shastri said that his inability to handle the responsibilities of serving as captain may have lost him a spot in the one-off Test.
