Mayank Agarwal fell ill just before boarding a flight to New Delhi and was rushed to a local hospital. The former India opener suspected foul play and filed a police complaint. He consumed a liquid from a pouch left on his seat, thinking it was water, which caused irritation in his mouth. Mayank had led Karnataka to victory over Tripura and was set to play in the Ranji Trophy, but his physical condition has excluded him from the game. He will be transported to Bengaluru for further medical attention. His international career took a downturn in 2022, leading to his exclusion from the Indian Test side and a change in team franchise. Despite struggling with the Sunrisers Hyderabad, Mayank will be observed in a hospital in Agartala and transported to Bengaluru once doctors provide an update on his condition.
