Second Test hundred for Mayank Agarwal.
It was at Pune where Mayank hit his first triple hundred (304*) v Maharashtra in the 2017-18 Ranji Trophy season. That innings changed his fortunes

For now, Mayank has certainly earned the right to open the batting. Need to watch him bat in SEN, where his staying legside-type technique would be tested #INDvSA

What a commanding century by Mayank Agarwal! He has made it look easy and looks comfortable in the middle. Tough initially but he makes the most of every opportunity.
