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.

It was Grant Elliott and New Zealand's time in Auckland. Not South Africa's. But the Proteas will leave this tournament wondering when that will ever change. Maybe next time.
