    If you still don’t know his name, you are probably living under a rock.

    Mayank has been outshining in test cricket for almost a year now, it all started with a call up against Australia.

    After a record-breaking domestic season in 2017-18, which included over a 1000 runs within a month, and consistent performances for both Karnataka & India A; he received his maiden call up to the Indian Test Team midway through the 2018-19 Border-Gavaskar Series in Australia. Mayank's gritty knock of 76 on Test match debut in Melbourne, was the second-highest score by an Indian opener on Test debut overseas. He carried that form for the rest of the tour and his 42 was the top-score in India’s second innings at Melbourne, which gave the team enough runs to force a win in the Test. In his second Test match in Sydney, he scored a fluent 77 and was involved in a century stand for the second wicket. India won the Test series 2-1 and Mayank was part of history as India had never previously won a Test series in Australia. Most recently, Mayank Agarwal top-scored and powered Karnataka to a win in the Final of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy T20 competition. Yet again it was a historic win, as this was the first time Karnataka won the domestic T20 competition.

    His performance is off the charts since then, with the double century against the proteas, and then again a century in the second inning. He was acknowledged for his form and was awarded the Emerging Cricketer of the year award for the year 2019.

    He duplicating his form against Bangladesh and scored another double ton, helping India win in an emphatic fashion with an inning in hand.

    Now his eyes are at the first-ever day and night test match to be held in India, how will he fare against the pink ball?
