BCCI announces Mayank Agarwal as a backup call for Rohit Sharma ahead of the 5th Test against England

Mayank Agarwal has been included in the Indian squad for the only Test match against England. Rohit Sharma was found positive in the Covid-19 test during the practice match against Leicestershire, so suspense remains on whether he will be able to play the Test match to take place in Birmingham from July 1. However, the BCCI has announced that Mayank Agarwal will join the team ahead of the Birmingham Test match.

Mayank Agarwal has been called up to be included in the Test squad. The last match of the 2021 five-match Test series between India and England had to be postponed due to Covid-19. India is leading 2-1 in the series and the last Test match of this series is now to be played from July 1.

The BCCI has informed in a press release issued on Monday that Mayank Agarwal has taken a flight to the UK. However, the Indian Cricket Board has not clarified whether Rohit Sharma will play in that Test match or not.

Rohit Sharma is still the captain of the team in the press release from BCCI secretary Jay Shah. In such a situation, it would be wrong to say that someone else can be the captain of the team. It is time for the first Test to start and if Rohit gets fit before the match. He will play the match and be seen captaining.

The suspense on whether Rohit Sharma will be available for this match remains constant. Till now no announcement has been made by Team India regarding the captaincy. When Rohit was found to be Covid-19 positive in the middle of the practice match. He was captained by Jasprit Bumrah. 

It is believed that if Rohit is unable to play this match, then Bumrah will take over the command of the team. KL Rahul is already out of this match due to injury.

If Rohit is also not available. Then Mayank Agarwal can be seen opening the innings with Shubman Gill in his place. Rohit’s RTPCR report is to come today. Today it can be decided whether he will be able to play the Test match to be held from July 1 or not.
