Cricket News: Every batter’s dream is to score a century at one of the world’s most famous cricket venues. From Lord’s in England to Wankhede in India, players strive to break the three-figure mark and have their names inscribed in history. Furthermore, having their names etched on the Honours Boards of important stadiums ensures that the players’ contributions will live on in perpetuity.
Mayank Agarwal of India, who scored a century and a fifty in the second and final Test of the series against New Zealand, is the most recent player to achieve the feat. Mayank not only received the player of the match honour but his name was also added to the Wankhede Stadium Honours Board. The athlete, who was overjoyed to see his name on the board, turned to social media to share a photo of it with his name scribbled on it.
Mayank expressed his pride in the feat, saying, “This is more than simply a name on a list. This is the culmination of all of the hard effort into something greater. For someone who grew up idolising the game, winning a Test match and contributing to a country’s victory is everything. It’s an honour to be included with such greats.” Meanwhile, Kevin Pietersen, the former England captain and batter, was quick to observe that his name on the board was misspelt. Mayank then jokingly demanded that Pietersen amend his name.
On the Wankhede Honours Board, Pietersen’s name was spelt wrongly as ‘Pieterson.’
Here is the comment:
Meanwhile, Mayank joined the ranks of Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, Alastair Cook, and Kevin Pietersen, who had their names etched on the Wankhede Stadium’s Honours Board, after his outstanding performance in the second Test against New Zealand.
In the second Test against New Zealand, when India captain Virat Kohli won the toss and chose to bat first, Agarwal smashed 150 runs off 311 balls on the tricky Wankhede pitch. The batsman continued his strong form when India batted for the second time in the game, scoring 62 off 108 balls. The hosts easily won the game by 372 runs, securing the series after the first match finished in a tie.
