The batter was hit on the head by a Siraj bouncer at the nets two days before the match
The incident occurred early in Agarwal’s batting session. He was immediately surrounded by team-mates, including Siraj and the coaching staff. A little while later, Agarwal walked out alongside the physio Nitin Patel. He was seen holding the back of his head as he walked off.
