Agarwal may be out of the playing eleven due to the drought of runs

New Delhi, 5 January (IANS) Indian batsman Mayank Agarwal performed brilliantly in his first two matches in Australia two years ago, but this time his bat has been silent in the first two matches of the four-match Test series. He has faced 101 balls so far in four innings of this series.

Due to this conflict, the team management may include Rohit Sharma in the playing XI instead of Aggarwal for the third Test. Former Indian captain Sunil Gavaskar has cited the reason for Aggarwal’s poor form as he is not standing up properly.

Gavaskar said, the (extra) space between his legs is not giving him the balance he needs to move forward or back against the Australian bowlers. On pitches where there is little bounce, you have to use your back-foot. He has not used his back-foot. He has tried to go to the front foot all the time.

Agarwal’s childhood coach Irfan Sait is also unhappy with his batting.

Sait told IAANS, apart from his legs, his hand is far behind. His hand is near his right hip, while it should be near the belly button as before.

Sait is surprised by Aggarwal’s poor performance and wondering why and on whose advice the right-handed batsman changed his stand.

It is unlikely that the Indian team management will prioritize them over the experienced Rohit. He will now also have to compete with youngster Shubman Gill, who impressed with his performance in Melbourne.
