India opener Mayank Agarwal carried on his scintilliating form on Day 2 of the first Test against Bangladesh as he went on to register his second double hundred in the longest format in Indore. The batsman reached the landmark with a six off Mehidy Hasan. On the back of his innings, India crossed 200-run lead in the match. Doing so, the right-handed batsman fulfilled the wishes of his captain Virat Kohli.

Just when Mayank had crossed the 150-run mark, the Indian skipper had signalled to him to go for a double ton from the stands. In reply to his captain, Mayank showed a thumbs-up.

 

As soon as Mayank crossed the 200-run mark, the Indian skipper jumped in celebrations in the stand and gave a huge applause to the opener for his performance. Kohli then signalled to the batsman to go for a triple hundred. Will Mayank become only the third batsman after Virender Sehwag and Karun Nair to get a triple hundred in Tests? Time will tell.
