Mayank Agarwal has been super impressive since his debut. Hope he doesn't follow the path of his fellow kannadigan.

Post tea, India is currently on 454 runs for the loss of five wickets with Hanuma VIhari playing on nine and Ravindra Jadeja batting on the same score. The Indian fans would want the bowlers to deliver quite a similar performance and bundle out the visitors no sooner they walk into bat.
