Twitter trolls KL Rahul, Murali Vijay as Mayank Agarwal shines on debut

Posted On / /

Mayank Agarwal got off to a fantastic start in international cricket with a score of 76 in the third Test against Australia in Melbourne on Wednesday.

In front of close to 70,000 spectators at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), Mayank strung key partnerships with Hanuma Vihari and Cheteshwar Pujara to help India reach 215/2 at the end of Day 1.

The cricket fans couldn’t hold back when they got a chance to troll opening batsmen KL Rahul and Murali Vijay on Twitter, who have failed to score consistently this year. The micro-blogging site was filled with hilarious memes.

However, Mayank Agarwal who has smashed the highest ever score by an Indian opener on Australian soil didn’t complain much about the MCG pitch.

“I won’t complain about the pitch. It was good to bat on. It did do a bit early on. It was a bit slow and then as the day progressed and we batted after lunch it got a little quicker. I did not think too much of the wicket and I did not put a lot of minds or thought to the wicket before the game,” the 27-year-old told the reporters after the day’s play.

“I just said I want to try and stay blank and take it as it comes and while I am at the wicket let me assess the wicket and let me see how to go about it,” he added.
