Agarwal has played innings of 215, 108 and 243 runs on Indian cricket.
Hanuma Vihari replaces Pujara
If Pujara does not play the last Test match, then Hanuma Vihari can be included in his place. Team India’s reliable batsman Hanuma Vihari is often in and out of the team’s playing XI. 27-year-old Hanuma Vihari has scored 624 runs in 12 Test matches at an average of 32.84.
