Yet again, the Indian National Cricket Team dealt with a massive blow. They have lost the services of the all-rounder Vijay Shankar, who got hurt on his Toe by Jasprit Bumrah during the net sessions. Meanwhile, the reports suggest that Mayank Agarwal is the likely candidate to get the nod.

Vijay Shankar was named in the World Cup squad as the number 4 batsman, which he got after Shikhar Dhawan being ruled out and KL Rahul opening the innings. Sadly, the hit on his toe in the net sessions has made him sit out in the game against England.

It was the game when Rishabh Pant made his world cup debut for the Indian team. Now, the latest reports by PTI suggest that the youngster has been ruled out for the remaining part of the tournament. The Karnataka opening batsman Mayank Agarwal is the likely candidate to get the nod.

Now, the Board of Control for Cricket in India will make a formal request to ICC in order to get the services of a new player in place of the injured-Vijay Shankar.

If the reports are believed, then, the addition of Mayank Agarwal would help the team management to get back KL Rahul at number 4 position. Mayank Agarwal got the good record while opening the innings for India A in England conditions.
