Just a couple of days to go before India gets its five-Test campaign against England for the Pataudi Trophy underway; it has been dealt with its opening setback. Opener Mayank Agarwal has been ruled out of the opening Test in Trent Bridge due to a concussion.

It all happened on Monday when a bouncer hit him on the head during a training session. Immediately, Team India's medical team conducted a concussion test upon him, reports the Board of Control for Cricket in India.

"He has shown signs of concussion and is ruled out of the opening Test against England. The 30-year-old is stable and will remain under close medical observation," added BCCI's statement.

Meanwhile, vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane confirmed that all the remaining 21 members and fit and sound and would be available for selection on Wednesday. "All the 21 guys are fit for the selection for the 1st Test. All the pacers are available too for the first Test," he said in a virtual press meet on Monday.

India already has a couple of injury concerns, with Shubman Gill, Washington Sundar and Avesh Khan being ruled out due to injuries. Although Prithvi Shaw and Suryakumar Yadav are scheduled to arrive as their replacements, they are currently in isolation in Colombo after Krunal Pandya tested positive during the just-concluded Twenty20 Internationals against Sri Lanka.
