On one side, India and Australia are facing each other in the Border Gavaskar Trophy, on the other hand, the Karnataka team is facing Saurashtra in the Ranji Trophy semi-final… Madhya Pradesh team is facing Bengal in the other semi-final…

In the semi-final against Saurashtra, Karnataka captain Mayank Agarwal put up a lone struggle by scoring 249 runs off 429 balls with 28 fours and 6 sixes. Samarth 3, Devdutt Padikkal 9, Manish Pandey 7, Shreyas Gopal 15, Krishnappa Gautam 2 runs disappointed. Wicket keeper Srinivas Sarath scored 66 runs…

Mayank Agarwal, who scored 249 runs, was run out as the last wicket and the Karnataka team was bowled out for 407 runs. In the ongoing match against Madhya Pradesh, Sudeep Garami scored centuries with 112 runs and Majumder scored 120 runs. Bengal was bowled out for 438 runs in the first innings.

A single series turned Mayank Agarwal’s career upside down along with Prithvi Shah. Mayank Agarwal, who acted as Team India’s opener in the Border Gavaskar Trophy 2020-21 tournament, had to lose his place in the final team due to Shubman Gill.

Mayank Agarwal, who opened with Prithvi Shah in the Adelaide Test, opened with Shubman Gill in the Melbourne Test. Team India did not play Mayank Agarwal in the Sydney Test as he did not get any spark from the bat in both the Tests.

Mayank Agarwal, who batted in the middle order in the Brisbane Test due to injuries to players like Hanuma Vihari and Ravindra Jadeja, lost his place in Team India as Shubman Gill and Rohit Sharma were settled as openers.

After Shubman Gill was injured, Team India chose Mayank Agarwal as the opener for the Test series against England. But before the start of the match Mayank Agarwal suffered a severe head injury and KL Rahul opened in his place…

KL Rahul, who made a re-entry in Tests after three years, settled in the team with a century. With this Shubman Gill and Mayank Agarwal also lost their place in the team. Mayank Agarwal, who played in the series against New Zealand with Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul resting, impressed with 160 runs. But Mayank could not fix a place in the team…

Mayank Agarwal, who has scored 796 runs at an average of 79.6 in the Ranji Trophy 2022-23 season, can hardly expect a place in Team India. Because they are already competing to open with KL Rahul along with Shubman Gill and Rohit Sharma. Mayank Agarwal, who has scored two double centuries in Tests, may get another call from the selectors if two of these three get injured or fail miserably.
