Mayank Agarwal was up to Virat Kohli’s challenge of scoring a double century.

Mayank Agarwal scored a massive 243 runs for India in the first innings of the ongoing Test match between India and Bangladesh. This was his second double-century in his last eight outings.

The opener scored 93 more runs than the entire Bangladesh team and has set India on course to set a massive total for Bangladesh to chase in the second innings.

Twitter has been buzzing with Agarwal’s dominant display in the opening match of their two-match series.

Journalist Shekhar Gupta commended Agarwal’s desire and hunger on Twitter.

Cricket analyst and commentator Harsha Bhogle spoke about how Agarwal has probably cemented his place in the Indian cricket. “Great example of how to cement your place. Having toiled for so long, Mayank Agarwal is making his opportunity, and form, count. This is a classy double.“

Today he got to his 200 in true Sehwag style!


A fan took to Twitter to laud Mayank as the future of Indian cricket “Indian Cricket Team's future seems secure. Very well played. May he go on to make many many more.
