Mayank Agarwal Finally Gets a Bat Sponsor, CEAT Gets Him on Board

Ranji Trophy’s highest-scoring cricketer in the 2017-18 season, Mayank Agarwal, has finally got a bat sponsor on board.

CEAT Ltd. on Tuesday announced its association with the Karnataka batsman. The brand already sponsors cricketers like Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Ishan Kishan, Shubman Gill and Harmanpreet Kaur.

The new deal means Mayank will be seen playing with a CEAT bat in all formats of the game.

“I am extremely proud to associate with CEAT, and it’s an honour for me to represent the brand, both on and off the cricket field. CEAT has a long and illustrious history in cricket, and it gives me a great sense of pride and responsibility to join the group of talented and successful cricketers at CEAT.”
Mayank Agarwal, Indian Cricketer

Mayank Agarwal made his mark by becoming the top scorer for India at the 2010 Under-19 World Cup. His remarkable performance in the 2017-18 Ranji Season, where he scored over a 1000 runs earned him the Madhavrao Scindia Award that is presented to the highest run-scorer in the season. That performance paved the way for his entry into Kings XI Punjab at the 2018 IPL auction.

Mayank recently made a dream Test debut against Australia during the Border - Gavaskar Series on Boxing Day, 26 December 2018. He went on to score 76 runs in his first innings of the match, which was the highest score by an Indian cricketer on Test debut in Australia.
