Every Cricketer dreams of representing their nation. Each of them from starting wants to play Cricket and give the best services to the game. Test Cricket is always special in all the formats of the game. White Jersey makes you feel the royalty of Cricket. Every player wants to give their best in the game. Batsmen try to score as many runs they can and bowlers try to grab as many wickets in the game of Cricket. The five-days format makes you the proper Cricketer.
Mayank Agarwal, the new Indian top-order batsman is in talks for his great knock of 215 against South Africa in the ongoing Test match in Vishakapatnam. He joined the list of the Indian Batsmen who converted their maiden Test hundred into a 200-plus score.
Let’s recall the great knocks of these Indian Cricketers.
1. Dilip Sardesai
Dilip Sardesai was the first Indian cricketer who scored 200 not out against New Zealand in 1965 in Mumbai (Bs). In 1965, he opened and scored 200 not out against New Zealand, which not only saved India from a big defeat. Dilip Sardesai is also known as Indian cricket’s ‘renaissance man’, he was the first Indian to score a double century overseas.
2. Vinod Kambli
The second was Vinod Kambli who played a knock of 224 against England in 1993 against England in Mumbai (Ws). Kambli made his Test debut in 1993 against England, against whom he hit his maiden double-hundred, in just his second Test match. He followed it up with another double-hundred against Zimbabwe in the next match, before scoring a hundred against Sri Lanka to make history by becoming the only cricket to score 100+ in three innings against three different opponents. Although he had a bright start to his Test career, Kambli considered for Tests after 1995, meaning he had only 17 Tests against his name.
3. Karun Nair
And third, was Karun Nair who converted his maiden Test century into triple hundred against England in Chennai in 2016 and was not out on the score of 303. He became only the second Indian after Virender Sehwag to score a triple century in Tests as Nair top-scored with an unbeaten 303 in India’s highest-ever innings total.
4. Mayank Agarwal
