Mayank Agarwal unlikely to get a chance in West Indies limited-overs series
If Team management gives rest to Rohit Sharma then Mayank may receive his limited-overs call-up. Mayank Agarwal is continuously playing well in test cricket.
“Where is the space in the opening department in the limited-overs team? Rohit (Sharma) and Shikhar (Dhawan) are your established openers. There’s no slot at the top for even someone like KL Rahul now. Virat (Kohli) will come back into the team as well. Players can go through ups and downs. Mayank can only come in only if Rohit or Shikhar want to take rest, but he won’t be rushed into the T20 side,” said a BCCI source, reported the Times of India.
“Let him score runs in the IPL. Firstly, he has to be played consistently by his franchise,” the official added.
West Indies team will travel India at the start of the next for the three-match T20I series and a three-match ODI series. The series will start from December 06 with the T20I series in Mumbai.
