Mayank Agarwal is an explosive right-hand opening batsman from Bangalore, who has modelled his style of play on Virender Sehwag. Agarwal smashed 432 runs at an average of 54 in five matches in the Under-19 Cooch Behar Trophy in 2008-09. He toured Australia in 2009 with the U-19 side and hit a match-winning 160 in a one-dayer.
Agarwal was a bright spot in a disappointing Under-19 World Cup for India in 2010, top-scoring for his side in the tournament. He was a consistent performer for Karnataka in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy in the 2010-11 season, scoring 166 runs at a strike-rate of 139.49. He was also Man of the Series in the 2010 Karnataka Premier League, making the only century of the tournament.
In 2011, he was selected to play for the Bangalore Royal Challengers in the IPL.

From the bouncer that struck him on the badge of his helmet to the bouncer that dismissed him, Virat Kohli's century, and his duel with Mitchell Johnson, made for compelling human drama
After the tragedy of Phillip Hughes' death, this match showed that cricket and life will continue to go on. This time Test cricket dug in and got through to tea.
Virat Kohli's innings on the final day transcended the conditions, the bowlers and his batting partners, and when it was all in vain, he displayed remarkable grace in defeat
The new stand-in captain has the makings of a long-term leader, given his ability to stay ahead of the game
Turning your back on a system that the whole cricketing world wants a discussion on, refusing to discuss it because it is not 100%, is not good enough
The failed gamble of handing Karn Sharma a Test debut despite him having a moderate first-class record means India have to rethink who their spinner will be
After a long time we have seen an Indian team and captain enjoy the challenge of trying to overcome stronger opposition in an overseas Test
