Mayank Agarwal got off to a fantastic start in the Test arena with a score of 76 in the third Test against Australia in Melbourne on Wednesday. He strung key partnerships with Hanuma Vihari and Cheteshwar Pujara to help India reach 215/2 at the end of Day 1.

However, KL Rahul welcomed his best friend to Test cricket with a very important message.

Agarwal who smashed the highest ever (76) by an Indian opener on Australian soil, didn’t complain much about the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) pitch.

“I won’t complain about the pitch. It was good to bat on. It did do a bit early on. It was a bit slow and then as the day progressed and we batted after lunch it got a little quicker. I did not think too much of the wicket and I did not put a lot of minds or thought to the wicket before the game,” the 27-year-old told the reporters on Wednesday.

“I just said I want to try and stay blank and take it as it comes and while I am at the wicket let me assess the wicket and let me see how to go about it,” he added.
