Now the doors of this batsman’s return are closed

After Shubman Gill, Mayank Agarwal was almost certain to play, but Mayank was also ruled out of the match due to an injury sustained during practice just before the first Test. In such a situation, KL Rahul was included in the Test team after a long wait of 2 years.

In such a situation, after the kind of performance KL Rahul has shown in two matches, it would not be wrong to say that now all avenues of return to the Test team are closed for Gill and Mayank. Let us tell you that KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal are also close friends and both players are seen playing for Karnataka in domestic cricket.
