From the risk of missing the Mumbai Test ..
The Test series is crucial for Mayank Agarwal, who missed out on a place in the playing XI after the arrival of Rohit Sharma and Shubhman Gill in this year’s Sydney Test. He failed in both innings of the first Test. This threatened his place in the Mumbai Test. Many former veterans have suggested that Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane should continue in Playing XI and remove Mayank. However the team management kept faith in him. Mayank hit a century to prove this belief correct.
Mayank, playing in the 16th Test, crossed the 100 mark for the fourth time. His four centuries came on home soil. In 2019, he scored his first century against South Africa in Visakhapatnam.
At the same time, the Mayank Test averaged 91.12 on home soil with this century. Mayank averaged the highest after Great Australian batsman Sir Dan Bradman. Bradman has scored 98.22 runs on Australian soil in his Test career.
