Mayank Agarwal IPL Career
Mayank Agarwal was included in India’s Test Team for the West Indies Series in 2018, but he did not feature in the final playing XI. His Test debut finally came against Australia in December of 2018 at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). In the first innings, he played a knock of 76. It was the highest by an Indian bat on Test debut Down Under. In this process, he broke Dattu Phadkar, a 71-year-old record. In the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup in England, he was called in as a replacement for the injured Vijay Shankar.
Mayank Agarwal through the Year in the IPL
What would your strategy when you are about to face none other than the Muttiah Muralitharan and that too for the first time? The 20-year-old Mayank Agarwal hit him for a six by slog sweeping while making his IPL debut playing for RCB in 2011. It is how he announced his arrival into the IPL scene. Mayank has been an aggressive batsman and has never been afraid to hit bowlers – even the best ones. His first IPL 50 came against a formidable Mumbai Indians (MI) at a 200 strike rate. He went after the likes of Lasith Malinga, and his knock included 4 sixes and 6 fours. Despite being a big hitter, what he lacked was consistency. His 2nd 50 in the IPL had to wait for close to 3 years. During the 2018 IPL season, he was picked by Kings XI Punjab and was given enough chances. Yet, he could accumulate only 120 runs in 11 games.
Life after the IPL 2019
Virat Kohli had said that the performances of the players in the IPL would not be considered as a benchmark while picking the Team for the World Cup 2019. Thus, despite having a mediocre outing for Kings XI Punjab, Agarwal got rewarded on the basis of merit. Hence, he took the flight to England for replacing the injured Vijay Shankar for the 2nd phase of the marquee Tournament. The injury that Shikhar Dhawan had got denoted that KL Rahul would be pushed up the order with Rohit Sharma. Even when KL Rahul had a bad WC, he was asked to open in the Semi-Final Vs New Zealand. The Black Caps went on to defeat India in the match. It saw India crashing out of the Tournament, and it also meant that the hope of Mayank playing in the XI was gone. However, that did not deter the Karnataka bat from scoring runs in the purest format of the game – the Tests! He had a ho-hum Tour of West Indies but made up for everything in the home Series Vs the Proteas. He hit 340 runs (including a ton and a doubleton) in 3 games. He was also the 2nd highest run-scorer for India behind Rohit Sharma in this Series.
After the Test was completed in 4 days, he went back to play for Karnataka to feature in the Vijay Hazare Trophy Semi-Final match. He had a great game with a cameo of 47* in 33 balls against Puducherry. The knock helped the Team chase a total of 224 easily. Even in the Final, he contributed with the bat with an inning of 69 Not Out. It helped the Team pocketing the prized Vijay Hazare Trophy for the 4th time. Mayank Agarwal is now among India’s top contenders for the opener position in the Indian Test Team.
