Mayank Agarwal to lead Karnataka against Tamil Nadu: Report

The 32-year-old is now "fit and fine and there were no major issues"

Mayank Agarwal is set to captain Karnataka in their sixth-round 2023-24 Ranji Trophy clash against Tamil Nadu at Chepauk after missing the game against Railways due to a health emergency, ESPNcricinfo reported on Tuesday (February 6).

The 32-year-old was deboarded from the plane and rushed to a hospital in Agartala after he complained of irritation in his mouth and throat after consuming some liquid, which he thought was water that he consumed on the plane.

He was going to Surat via Delhi for Karnataka's round-five match against Railways. After being discharged the following day, he returned to Bangalore and was advised two days of rest before returning to competitive cricket.

He confirmed to the aforementioned website that he is now "fit and fine and there were no major issues." Apart from him, Devdutt Padikkal has also joined the Karnataka squad. The left-handed batter was with India A and had to miss the last two games.

In Agarwal’s absence, Nikin Jose led Karnataka, who beat Railways by just one wicket. Karnataka are currently placed at No. 2 on the Group C points table. Their next game against Tamil Nadu will start on Friday (February 9).
