ICC World Cup 2019: After Shikhar Dhawan, India lost Vijay Shankar due to a toe injury. In all probability, Mayank Agarwal is set to replace injured Vijay Shankar and fans are not too happy with it. Many players have been there in contention like Ambati Rayudu, Shreyas Iyer and Shubman Gill, but fans seem to believe that Ajinkya Rahane would have best suited into the side at No 4. Rahane has the experience and that is one thing that fans believe should have pushed his case. Rahane is currently in the UK and playing County cricket for Hampshire.Also Read - Ajinkya Rahane, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ishant Sharma Likely to Make India Test Squad For South Africa Tour; Shikhar Dhawan in Contention For ODI Return: Report
