Mayank Agarwal continued his purple patch with the bat in limited overs cricket with his second hundred of the tour as India A bulldozed West Indies A by seven wickets on Monday.
With the team in dire need of a win, Agarwal and Shubman Gill put together a 148-run stand for the second wicket that ensured India A chased a paltry total of 221 in a canter.
Having already showcased his batting might at Grace Road with an unbeaten 151 in the tour match, Agarwal smashed 11 boundaries and two maximums to score his tenth List A hundred. The Kings XI Punjab batsman is a gifted white-ball cricketer with his batting average now at 49.53 in the format, the fifth best among his countrymen, joining the august company of Virat Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujara and MS Dhoni.
Agarwal batted for a little over two hours and was eventually dismissed for a nonchalant 102-ball 112 after having put his team in a commanding position. However, the victory was set up by a magnificent fifer by Deepak Chahar in the first innings. Axar Patel, Kings' only retained player in this year's VIVO Indian Premier League, once again proved to be economical and finished with impressive figures of 7-1-26-0.
After having missed out in the opening encounter against England Lions, Agarwal would like to make amends when he faces them next on 26th June.
