India opening batsman Mayank Agarwal was hit on the head by a short ball from teammate Mohammed Siraj while practising in the nets on Monday, sources told NDTV. Agarwal will undergo a concussion test, sources said. The first Test between England and India begins on August 4 in Nottingham. Agarwal was likely to partner Rohit Sharma as opener in the Indian XI in the Tests. Should Agarwal not be available for the Trent Bridge Test starting in two days’ time, India have KL Rahul as a standby opening batsman.
This incident comes even as India have already lost an opening batsman in Shubman Gill, who was ruled out of the England tour due to shin injury.
