Mayank Agarwal Hits 220 Vs South Africa A, Twitterati Say 'Time To Replace Shikhar Dhawan'

In his 220-run knock, Agarwal smashed 31 fours and 4 sixes. He batted with a strike rate of 87.65

In a display of quality batting, the right-handed batsman from Karnataka, Mayank Agarwal scored a double century to guide his team India A to take a mammoth lead against South Africa A on Day 2 of the opening four-day game at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.

South African pacers found it difficult to stop Agarwal as he scored a smashing 220 off 251 before being given LBW.

In his 220-run knock, Agarwal smashed 31 fours and 4 sixes. He batted with a strike rate of 87.65.

Agarwal also stitched a crucial 277-run opening stand with his partner Prithvi Shaw who scored 136 off 196 balls.

Shaw had 20 boundaries and a six in his seventh first-class hundred.

The hero of the day certainly was local boy Agarwal, who hit his eighth first-class century. Following his superb show, Twitterati have suggested BCCI to replace him with Shikhar Dhawan in the reaming Test matches against England.

Dhawan faced the heat after he failed to perform with the bat in the first Test match between England and India and Edgbaston which Virat Kohli & Co. lost by 31 runs.

Agarwal had a great last season in domestic cricket where he scored over 1000 runs. Recently, during the India A tri-series in England, the right-handed batsman scored three hundreds.
