Vijay Shankar goes out, Mayank Agarwal comes in

Share

The highest point of Shankar's brief career came when he was picked for India's World Cup squad in April.

Vijay Shankar was ruled out of the 2019 ICC World Cup on Monday with a toe injury, bringing a premature end to what was supposed to be a career-defining tournament for the Tamil Nadi all-rounder.

Vijay Shankar was hit on a left toe by a Jasprit Bumrah yorker during the net practice.

"Vijay Shankar has a toe niggle, Rishabh Pant is in".

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. Following this, he was able to play in an unrestricted manner in the following two matches against Afghanistan and West Indies, the BCCI release said. He sustained a non displaced fracture of the left big toe, which will require a minimum of three weeks to heal.

Memon also offers some insight into the Dhoni-Jadhav partnership which baffled fans with the slow approach while evaluating Rishabh Pant's highly anticipated World Cup debut.

Agarwal's selection could also mean the Indian team management wanted a back-up opener after KL Rahul - who moved to the top after Dhawan went out - missed a large part of the England innings after hurting his hip while attempting a catch on the boundary.

Agarwal's India A form has been quite remarkable, with the Karnataka man finishing with 287 runs from just four games, averaging 71.75 with a strike rate of 105.90.

Agarwal, who made his Test debut against Australia past year, has not played an ODI yet. "Once he gets to 20, then he's unstoppable", Kohli had said.

It is expected that Agarwal's name will be approved by the ICC's tournament technical committee and the player will arrive in Birmingham and travel to Leeds subsequently.
