2. Mayank Agarwal
Mayank Agarwal has established himself in the international circuit after some great knocks in the home season in 2019. He stormed into the national side against the Aussies in the away series in 2018-19. After scoring poised fifties against the lethal bowling line-up, the 29-year-old cruised into the Indian cricket team as a mainstay. Till now, the top-order batsman has racked 1000 runs in 12 red-ball matches.
However, he could not live up to the billings this time around. As an opener alongside Prithvi Shaw, his bat remained calm in the away series against the kiwis. The Karnataka-based batsman scored only 102 runs. Hence, he failed to give a good kickstart to the Indian batting innings. Talking about the first Test at Adelaide Oval, Mayank remained off-colored scoring only 26 runs after the end of the two innings.
Hence, he secures the opening slot pairing up with his compatriot in this mundane list of flop players XI. It will be exciting to watch out whether the highly talented Mayank makes it big in the times to come or not.
