A big problem has arisen in front of Team India before the 5th Test due to Rohit Sharma being Kovid positive. Earlier it was being speculated that he would be fine before the first Test but looking at the development of the team, it seems unlikely. Actually, Mayank Agarwal has been called from England in the absence of Rohit. According to the information, Mayank Agarwal will leave for England on Monday and will be available for the Birmingham Test.
