The right-handed batsman got himself noticed after scoring over 2000 runs in domestic circuit across formats. He wasn’t still picked in the Indian team but did register a place for himself in the India ‘A’ side that will fly to England for a four-day ‘Test’ match scheduled to be played between July 16 and July 19. Karun Nair will be leading the team while Agarwal will have the onus of providing their side with some good scores early in the innings.
While he scored over 2000 runs in the domestic circuit, Agarwal didn’t really have a good IPL campaign. He only managed to score 120 runs in 11 matches with the best score of 30 to his name.
