He will be given injections to keep him pain-free for his travel back to Bengaluru, where he will check-in to a private hospital for further investigations. ESPNcricinfo understands Agarwal will need at least two days of hospitalization. This automatically rules him out of Karnataka’s upcoming fifth-round Ranji Trophy fixture against Railways, beginning on Friday. On Tuesday, Agarwal experienced a burning sensation in his throat and mouth after consuming liquid from a bottle he believed contained drinking water while traveling to Surat. This caused him to vomit, and he was taken to ILS Hospitals, where he was declared “clinically stable”. According to a medical bulletin issued by the hospital, Agarwal was experiencing “oral irritation” and “swelling on the lips”. A complaint was issued on Agarwal’s behalf to the Tripura Police, requesting an investigation into the incident. The complaint stated that Agarwal mistakenly drank liquid from a pouch on the flight, thinking it was water, which caused swelling and ulcers in his mouth. His condition is normal and stable, and the police will investigate the matter. IndiGo, the airline Agarwal was on, confirmed that the flight had to return to Agartala due to a medical emergency on board. In Agarwal’s absence, Karnataka will be led by Nikin Jose, the 23-year-old batter. Karnataka is currently second in Group C, with two wins, a loss, and a draw in four matches.
