The Mayank Agarwal Juggernaut

50 again today. Should score a big one in the knockouts to get into reckoning for selection.

Yes but even otherwise should be in the list of probables. Too good a player to ignore. Saw him today hit a six of a spinner above long-on on the back foot Sehwag like.

Mayank Aggarwal is killing it. But i still feel very bad for him because our Indian openers are showing no signs of leaving their place for Aggarwal. Both Dhawan and Rohit are in the peak of their forms in ODI cricket. 

 

Mayank Aggarwal, just wait, your time will come.

We can also try him in Place of Vijay in Tests, Vijay is already 35.

Vijay is too invaluable in tests, especially in overseas conditions, I think he is irreplaceable. Let him retire first.

I know IPL isn't high standard cricket but Mayank did look awesome on many occasions- excellent hand eye coordination. I'm surprised RCB never gave him more of a look in. I wouldn't mind him being tried out for India given his recent domestic performances.

Somehow when i watch this guy he doesnt convince me that he will do to well at international level atleast now.  I see guys like pant, gill, shaw, nair and they look like international materials but somehow mayank doesnt give me that confidence 

 

     Sirjee 

     Can you be more specific why he will not do well  in T 20s & 50 overs match .

     What are the short comings ?

      Is it against pace ?  No back foot shots , No pull shot .

      Not good against spin?  No big shots ?

      Only bang bang , no strike rotation ? 

      Poor fielder ?

      Please elaborate

PRoblem to zyaada badrinath men bhi nhin thi, but u see some n u feel like they dnt have anything special

If i have to pick something just dont feel he commits himself fully on front foot , which even rohit doesnt do but then he has the gift of timing. 

 

Wont be able to point something special but just dont see that something which i see in someone like Pant, nair, gill, shaw , pandya few yrs back. Its just with some cricketer u feel they can be good at international cricket despite lack of numbers or several technical issues 

 

Sirjee domestic men saare run marne wale konsa sabke sab chale hai aaj tak international men.

M not saying dont give him a chance, he has earned it. Even i had my doubts regd shreyas iyer but doesnt mean he shudnt have been given a chance ....he also earned it . 

M just giving my opinon i dnt see him that well in international as of now . 

 

Also Btw selectors job is not only to see the numbers its to spot the right talent, anyone can look at numbers n make a team. 

 

Sirjee guarantee to kuch nhin krta

     Sirjee .. You are such a prolific contributor , must be looking at players with microscope looking at your passion for the game ..

     I am not that deeply into it.. 

      Just wanted to know if there are any specific things which points to his possible failure ..

sorry cant point out something ....As i said there are some player whom u feel are international material some u feel dnt. U can ask me which players i feel are and i may say 1-2 things about them but cant explain in detail. 

 

And ofcourse i can be wrong

Do you think ?

 

Watching these highlights looks ok ? Simple method . Pitched up front foot , pitched back back foot . Plays straight and orthodox and plays all round wicket . Plus has power to hit ball in stands when needed 

 

from what I seen don’t see anything glaringly obvious wrong . Imo should be picked for india and then we can see more if up to it . 

 

Serious numbers he done no joke

Well he has piled on runs to put his case so he definately deserves a chance for India or India-A but here we are discussing can he do well or not

Saw him a bit on willow.tv highlights. He is timing so well. He picks up the length quickly. But I have one big gripe. He plays way in front of and away from his body. Maybe he is good at connecting the ball by playing like that in this form. You never know how that will pan out in the internationals. I will be skeptical about his success at the top level even though I have to say he deserves chances.

Amazing Run of form. He has been on the scene for a long time now so that is one of the reasons why people are not that excited vs. for someone younger and new like Pant. He has played in IPL and while he has some good cameos he has never really broken through. 

 

Plus he is not the technically perfect batsman. Back foot seems to stay stationary and he relies on hand and timing like Sehwag. 

 

His opportunity will come in IPL. This time expectations will be higher and he can justify those

This volume of runs is not a joke . Need to see him in india colours , good be someone who can deliver 

 

watching him bat I don’t see major flaws looks technically sound

 

sad that ipl will decide player picks . As his runs come in ranji and vijay. Not t20 format

I also think 27 is great age to start playing international cricket 

 

you know your game after years on fc circuit but not too old . Surely next odi series we have should be in?

 

this volume of runs can’t be ignored . Must have something?

Difficult to break into Indian LOIs as an opening batsman at this point of time.

 

Rohit, Dhawan .... Rahul and Rahane as back ups .... though most of us believe Rahane should be out of LOI teams.

 

Ironically, Mayank has better chance to break into the test team, though he looks more suited to LOI in terms or technique and stroke making. Mainly because there's a chance that Vijay may reach end of his career soon 'coz of form/fitness and Dhawan may also get dropped if he has a terrible series or two. And Abhinav Mukund has fallen off the radar in the recent times.

Or a spot at number 3 in test team . Pujara needs scores in engaknd or could face chop

And people get excited  here for new u-19 sensation who performed against other u-19 players. Our best picks in the test team are from domestic workhorses - Dravid, VVSL, etc.

One thing Sehwag and dhawans success on sub continental pitches proves is that if you have good hands you will more than make up for lack of tight defence or footwork stuff. Mayank could be another guy who can score those daddy hundreds with strikerate in 80s. How he fares overseas is a different thing altogether.

he is an opener, manish is a middle order batsman

He has to get accustom to playing at any position if he wants wear the blue jersey. Look at Rohit/Sehwag. They were middle order batsman for their states right ?

Totally . So stupid . Under 19 World Cup standard was not even close to fc standard 

 

players like Agarwal showing real class in best standard below international cricket . Under 19 boys also need to show this in fc cricket 

 

this guy could be special . His numbers are very special this year

Mayank scores in Vijay Hazare - 109, 84, 28, 102, 89, 140,81, 90 

 

7 80+ scores out of 8 innings with 3 100s

Also doesn't seem to lower the gear in 80s, 90s to get to his 100. Ideal temperament for 50 over cricket.  Sehwag like.

Some posters here r ridiculous, this kid has a proper technique is organised, plays all around ,moves forward well, back n across, drives, cut, back, front foot, also is a maverick plays some Laxmanesque shots, for me he could be a great find.

he is 27 so not a kid. he also is an opener. in test we have vijay/rahul/dhawan and in limited overs we have rohit/dhawan/rahual/rahane. Where is the place for Mayank ?
