India opener Mayank Agarwal struck his second Test double hundred – he had scored 215 in the last series, vs South Africa – as India built a huge first innings lead on Day 2 of the 1st Test between India and Bangladesh in Indore on Friday. Carrying on from an overnight score of 87/1, India put up more than 400 runs for only the third time in their Test history to finish Day 2 at 493/6.Ravindra Jadeja (60 off 76 balls) and Umesh Yadav (25 off 10 balls) will resume the India innings on Day 3. The hosts have a huge lead of 343 runs.
Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli were dismissed early on Day 2, but Ajinkya Rahane gave Agarwal able company throughout the day, as the two added 190 runs for the fourth wicket, taking the score beyond 300.
But it was Agarwal who managed to overshadow a batting line-up that has Rohit Sharma (6), Cheteshwar Pujara (54 off 72 balls), skipper Virat Kohli (0) and Ajinkya Rahane (86 off 172 balls) in its ranks.
