Karnataka batsman Agarwal proved once again that the Indian selectors have missed a trick by not giving him a shot in the senior team by smashing his third century in four games as India ‘A’ amassed 309-6 against England Lions in the tri-series on Tuesday.
Agarwal hit 112 from 104 balls to help India put up a challenging total. It came after knocks of 112 against the West Indies ‘A’ and 151 not out against Leicestershire in a warm-up game.
Gill too was in fine fettle on Tuesday as he scored his third fifty in four matches.
The India U19 World Cup winning star started the tour of England with 86 in a warm-up game against Leicestershire followed by 37 in the opening game of the tri-series against England Lions.
His picked up in the next game against the West Indies A, hitting an unbeaten 58 and then topped it by scoring 72 against the Lions on Tuesday.
Gill added 165 for the opening wicket with Agarwal as the Indians scored 309-6 in their 50 overs.
Agarwal’s knock included 10 fours and four sixes while Gill’s innings had ten fours and one six.
The form of the two batsmen gives the Indian management a lot of options during the long tour of England. With seamer Deepak Chahar in red-hot form, picking up five wickets in the last game, those in the senior team will have to be on top of their game or else these hopefuls will storm their way into the team
