Since Virender Sehwag's arrival in Indian cricket, he has had a huge influence on the country's prospective openers. Some of them modelled their technique after his, but the majority of them aspired to play in a similar manner. Mayank Agarwal fits into both of these groups. His Strokeplay and grace, which he brought to the table when he was a teenager, drew a lot of praise. He hogged the attention for the first time in the U19 World Cup, and despite India's disappointment in the competition, there was a lot of optimism about this man's future.
Mayank began his domestic career in the T20 format in 2010, and owing to his dazzling batsmanship, he was offered an IPL contract in 2011. Things were moving at a rapid rate for him, and all he had to do now was keep doing the right things. However, his IPL results were unimpressive to say the least, while his domestic stats were better, but still far from his actual talent.
There were glimpses of his talent everywhere, but he was also frustrated when he would eventually blow a lead. His white-ball game, on the other hand, was making steady improvement.
Mayank was troubled by fitness difficulties throughout the 2014-15 season, as his management was plainly unhappy with his body. As a result, he was able to devote more time to training, which helped him improve his mental game as well. Mayank was more confident than ever before, but he needed a career-changing season from somewhere to propel him ahead. That happened in the 2017-18 Ranji Season, when he went on a rampage, scoring over 1000 runs and topping the run rankings. It was a fantastic transition to his red-ball game, and the confidence spilled over into the white-ball competitions, where he was already a rising star.
All of his efforts paid off, as he was selected by the Kings XI Punjab in the 2018 IPL auctions. Mayank Agarwal may have finally come of age in the 2017-18 domestic season, according to many. Despite the fact that competition for positions in the Indian squad, particularly in batting, has become much too fierce in recent years, a call-up will undoubtedly occur. Particularly in light of the increasing importance placed on domestic results by national selectors. Mayank, on the other hand, can't rely on a one-off season; he needs to keep the good work coming, and a strong IPL season may help.
What do you do when you first meet the legendary Muttiah Muralitharan? Mayank Agarwal, then 20 years old, slog-swept his first ball for a six in his IPL debut in 2011 for his home team, Royal Challengers Bangalore. That was the way the flashy Karnataka top-order batsman declared his IPL debut. Agarwal was a fearless hitter who never shied away from taking on the finest bowlers in the game. He hit his first fifty (at a strike rate of above 200) against Lasith Malinga and the Mumbai Indians, a knock that included six fours and four sixes. Despite having the majority of the offensive shots, Agarwal has unable to maintain consistency. It took him nearly three years to reach his second half-century in the IPL.
Mayank Agarwal played for the Delhi Daredevils from 2014 to 2016, with his second year being the team's most fruitful. He was moved to Rising Pune Supergiant before of the 2017 season, however he only played three matches before being dropped from the starting XI due to poor performances. Agarwal was signed by Kings XI Punjab during the 2018 IPL Auction after an outstanding domestic season. However, he was unable to replicate his performance in the lucrative league, scoring only 120 runs in 11 games.
