Mayank Agarwal has shared his desire to make a comeback to the national team, saying that he is working hard towards the goal but will be satisfied irrespective of whether he achieves it as well. The batter further shared that his preparation has been reaping in limited overs cricket also. However, he is considered one of the best players across formats but he hardly got chances consistently.

Even though he has a good average of 41.33 in Tests, the rise of KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma alongside Shubman Gill has kept him out of the squad altogether too. A disastrous IPL 2022 was another one, where he managed only 196 runs in 12 innings as Punjab Kings skipper averaging 16.33. Nevertheless, he remains optimistic about his chances and represents India once again as well.

“I am somebody who isn’t going to give up,” he told ESPNcricinfo. “I am going to keep chasing it and improve my game with each passing day. I will be very happy with whatever comes my way, but the aspirations and dreams never die. It’s about going out there, improving and ticking all those boxes.”

“In the last four months, I’ve really worked hard on my batting. As you can see, I’ve started sweeping and reverse-sweeping the ball, that too against the fast bowlers. I’ve opened up four-five areas in my game which are paying rich dividends. I am very happy that the hard work I put in is paying off now. Getting two hundreds in a T20 tournament like the Maharaja Trophy feels amazing. It feels really nice when the players respond to you the way you want. Obviously runs behind my back really makes me feel good and then I can lead from the front,” Mayank Agarwal concluded.
