Indian batsman Mayank Agarwal could well make a comeback after one year into the playing XI in the test side and he will have to score consistently to keep his place. The right-hander was all set to get a chance in the playing XI against England in the five-match tests until he suffered a concussion injury in the nets session.

He was replaced by KL Rahul and the latter made use of the opportunity with some brilliant knocks that sealed a spot for him. It will now be up to who will partner KL Rahul in the test playing XI for the first game against New Zealand with options of Shubman Gill as well. Mayank Agarwal had an interview with TOI as reported and he had opined his views.

I don’t think of it as bad luck or anything like that. That’s just part of life. Having the sort of thing that happened is is just a part of life.
