Since I can watch Indian cricket (via the garbage ‘Hotstar’) I have seen Mayank Agarwal score 583 Test runs in 5-innings over the last 2 months — 4 against South Africa and one against Bangladesh. That is a lot of runs and included 2 double centuries, 215 against South Africa & 243 against Bangladesh. True that these were not against the stellar of sides — South Africa right now playing like girls and Bangladesh isn’t exactly known for its firepower.

His Test stats are impressive: 8 innings, 6 of which were over 50.

Yes, in time bowlers, carefully studying the videos, will work out his weaknesses. But, for now he is dynamite to watch.

Some of hitting, once he was past 150 was amazing — breathtaking. I was in awe.

Touches of Viv Richards & Zaheer Abbas. They, i.e., the Indians, have rated him highly in their domestic cricket. Yes, I saw him in the IPL too.

He is exciting to watch.

Just wanted to share this with you since many of you may not get a chance to see the India v Bangladesh series.
