ENG vs IND: India Player Suffers Massive Head Injury Ahead of 1st Test
Updated on: Aug 2, 2021 6:22 pm IST
The stage is all set as two of the biggest cricketing nations England and India will square off with each other in the five-Test series. The Virat Kohli-led side after losing three series on a trot in England would be aiming to register their first Test series win since 2007. On the other hand, the Joe Root-led side will be looking to avenge their defeat over India after a 3-1 loss earlier this year.
Mayank Agarwal was injured after being hit on the head in nets
The five-Tests series between England and India will kick start from 4th August at Trent Bridge. With only two days remaining for the start of the first Test match, Team India has suffered a major blow as opener Mayank Agarwal was hit on the head by a bouncer from Mohammad Siraj today while practising in the nets.
However, it remains to be seen whether Mayank Agarwal will be available for the first Test match against England as there’s no official confirmation yet. With Shubman Gill also injured and Prithvi Shaw yet to arrive in England, the injury of Mayank Agarwal could be a major concern for Virat Kohli-led side as who will open the innings alongside Rohit Sharma.
The bowler who hit him with a bouncer might have been Siraj but we are not sure.
