Bangalore boy, Mayank Agarwal hit his maiden double hundred against South Africa, scoring 215 runs in the first Test of three match series in Vizag, Andhra Pradesh.
After a solitary half-century on the tour of West Indies, Mayank Agarwal walked in to open with Rohit Sharma and the pair became the third in Indian cricket history to add 300 runs together for the opening wicket of a Test innings.
