The new Indian batting sensation Mayank Agarwal continued from where he left on the first day against South Africa at Vishakhapatnam.
The right-handed batsman scored 215 and he has taken India’s score over 400 and counting. Six maximums and 23 fours have taken Mayank Agarwal to his first-ever double hundred in Test match cricket.
Agarwal’s double hundred is the 52nd 200-plus score for India in Test matches. Mayank’s journey has been truly inspirational as he wasn’t the first choice player for India despite scoring heaps of runs in first-class and for India A as well.
He was picked for Australia’s tour last year and he scored a brilliant half-century on debut down under. Since then, Mayank Agarwal hasn’t looked back and he promises to become one of India’s main players in the longer format in the years to come.
