Hydration hero! Mayank Agarwal jokes after hospital scare: ‘No More Risk’

Mayank Agarwal is unwilling to take any risk whatsoever with what he consumes in a flight after his 'near death' experience previously

Karnataka batter Mayank Agarwal will think twice before he sips on anything in a flight. After a harrowing experience mid-air last time, which left him hospitalized, the batter is taking no risk at all this time. Agarwal shared a selfie of himself clinching a sipper bottle as he was sitting aboard a flight.

Mayank Agarwal’s risk-free strategy

Agarwal had suffered a serious health scare while travelling from Tripura after he ingested a liquid on the flight, believing it to be water.

The right-handed batter was deplaned and rushed to a hospital in Agartala, where he was monitored by the medical team and was discharged the following day.

Mayank Agarwal returned to Bengaluru the next day but missed the Ranji Trophy encounter against Railways in Surat.

 Agarwal himself filed a police complaint in Agartala, alleging foul play after consuming the suspicious liquid.

Initial reports described Agarwal experiencing throat irritation and lip swelling after drinking water kept behind the seat pocket. Karnataka team manager Ramesh elaborated, revealing Agarwal’s sudden discomfort and the crew’s swift response, leading to an emergency landing and hospitalization.
