Twitter reactions on Mayank Agarwal’s second Test century: Twitter was exhilarated at watching the Indian opening batsman play exceedingly well.
During the first day of the second Test of the ongoing South Africa’s tour of India in Pune, India opening batsman Mayank Agarwal registered his second Test hundred to propel their team to a strong start.
Opening the batting with Rohit Sharma (14), Agarwal faced a stern challenge with the new ball first up. With South African pacers in Vernon Philander and Kagiso Rabada moving the ball, Agarwal was beaten on several occasions.
When South Africa captain Faf du Plessis introduced debutant fast bowler Anrich Nortje into the attack, he hit Agarwal in the helmet with a brutal bouncer. However, it was Agarwal’s grit and determination which saw him not just hit a boundary on the following delivery but also crossing the three-figure mark.
After Sharma’s dismissal in the 10th over, Agarwal stitched a 138-run stand for the second wicket alongside senior batsman Cheteshwar Pujara (58). It was during this partnership that Agarwal hit a four off South Africa spinner Keshav Maharaj to bring up his half-century in the 34th over.
Batting with captain Virat Kohli post tea, Agarwal ran down the track twice to hit Maharaj for sixes off consecutive deliveries. It was on the fourth delivery of the 57th over that Agarwal hit a boundary off Philander to score his second century of the series.
