Kohli signals Agarwal from dressing room to go for 200
Chandigarh, November 15
After Team India opener Mayank Agarwal reached 150 runs in the first Test against Bangladesh on Friday, Team India captain Virat Kohli signalled from the dressing room urging Agarwal to go for a double hundred.
Agarwal responded to Kohli with thumbs up. “Keep Batting BOY…Sure Skip!” BCCI wrote sharing a video. Mayank Agarwal struck his second double century in four Tests as India took their first innings lead over Bangladesh to more than 200 on day two of the opening Test.
The in-form opener, who has hit three tons and two double hundreds in his last five Test innings, pulverized the Bangladesh bowling.
He completed his 200 with a six off Mehidy Hasan and raised his arms amid a standing ovation from the crowd in Indore. India were 365 for four in 100 overs with a lead of 215 in response to Bangladesh’s 150 all out on Thursday. Agarwal was on 202 accompanied by Ravindra Jadeja.
