Mumbai: India opening batter Mayank Agarwal has said that scoring a hundred at the Wankhede Stadium is special for any Indian. Mayank’s comments after the right-handed batter registered a century on Day 1 of the ongoing second Test against New Zealand.
“Definitely this innings means a lot to me. Getting a Test hundred at Wankhede is always special for any Indian. I would just like to say that this innings was not the nicest looking, not the easiest of innings but it was all about grit and determination. I am happy that I was able to stick to the plan and bat through the day,” Mayank told teammate Prasidh Krishna in a video posted on bcci.tv.
Mayank scored his fourth Test ton as India ended day one of the second and final Test at 221/4 on Friday. The opening batter scored an unbeaten 120 while Wriddhiman Saha hit 25 before the close of play.
Despite losing partners at the other end Mayank looked solid and kept the scoreboard moving and capitalized on the poor deliveries that came his way as India scored 221/4 on day one of the second Test.
Meanwhile, Indian Captain Virat Kohli entered the record books for something he will not like to remember. He became the first Indian captain to register 10 ducks in Test cricket, leaving behind MS Dhoni with 8 ducks.
