KolkataMayank Agarwal and Lokesh Rahul should be selected if a situation arises that Shubman Gill has to be ruled out of the five-match Test series against England due to injury, says the former India cricketer. Shubman is considered difficult to play in the first Test on August 4 due to injury. There is also a discussion going on whether the Indian team can keep a backup. However, the Indian Cricket Board has not issued an official statement regarding Shubman’s injury. At present, there is only information that Shubman has suffered a leg injury. Dasgupta said Mayank should be the first choice as an opener as he adapts to the English environment. “The team has two options in the form of Mayank and Rahul. I consider Mayank the first choice because even though he has played two or three bad innings but overall his Test career has been affected. Dasgupta said, ‘Lokesh Rahul has been batting at the top of the order for Karnataka or India. But the way Rahul plays in limited overs, his technique has changed and he has become aggressive. His offensive technique has improved but his defensive technique is not that much better.
