Continuing his fine run in the longest format of the game, opener Mayank Agarwal completed his second double century in the ongoing Test between India and Bangladesh. The right-handed batsman scored 243 in 330 balls, which included 28 fours and eight sixes.

Agarwal reached the milestone in style as he smashed Mehidy Hasan for a six over the long-on boundaries. Several former Indian cricketers lauded the opener for his brilliant display with the bat, while Sanjay Manjrekar compared the 28-year-old with one of cricket’s all-time devastating batsman Virender Sehwag.

Here are a few reactions:

Resuming his innings from an overnight score of 37, Agarwal added another 64 runs during the course of the second day. The batsman was awarded a lifeline during the final session on Day 1 while batting at 32, as Imrul Kayes spilled a sitter off Abu Jayed at first slip.

Mayank’s temperament in the longer format was perfectly highlighted in the first Test against South Africa when he went on to convert his maiden Test ton into a double, while also emerging as the second-highest run-scorer in the Indian camp.
