Mayank Agarwal on Friday struck his second double century in four Tests as India took their first innings lead over Bangladesh to more than 200 on day two of the opening Test.
The in-form opener, who has hit three tons and two double hundreds in his last five Test innings, pulverised the Bangladesh bowling, NDTV reports.
He completed his 200 with a six off Mehidy Hasan and raised his arms amid a standing ovation from the crowd in Indore.
India were 365 for four in 100 overs with a lead of 215 in response to Bangladesh's 150 all out on Thursday.
Indian Express adds: After Bangladesh picked up two big wickets in the morning session of Day 2 of the first Test at Holkar International Stadium in Indore, India lost their talismanic captain.
Cheteshwar Pujara departed after scoring 54 whereas Virat Kohli got out for a rare duck, his third in home Tests. The DRS worked in Bangladesh as Abu Jayed got his third wicket of the match. After that Mayank Agarwal took up the role of the anchor reaching his third Test century in the second session, while Ajinkya Rahane supported him with a solid 86-run knock before being dismissed.
Earlier, India lost the wicket of Rohit Sharma early on in the innings. Jayed got the first wicket. Agarwal and Pujara had put on 91 runs for the second wicket.
Agarwal got a second chance getting dropped by Imrul Kayes off Jayed’s bowling. India will be looking to post a big score on Day Two in order to register another big win by an innings at home.
