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.
Dale Steyn on relationships, his beard, how growing up in the bush shaped him, and what attracted him to fast bowling
Do fast bowlers need verbal fisticuffs to generate aggression? Does sending a nightwatchman in always make sense? Is surpassing 100mph even possible?
Attacking play - particularly bowling - has been the team's hallmark down the decades, but not anymore it would seem
The boy from Burnley with magic in his wrist has surpassed all before him - with luck we will be able to enjoy his skill and application for a few more years yet
Azhar Ali's early steps in captaincy will be analysed extensively but he needs time to step out of the large shadows of Misbah-ul-Haq and Shahid Afridi
For New Zealand's wild child, there is probably no better place than county cricket right now
His current game is extremely premeditated, so as to delay taking risks, and it robs the innings of all natural flow
