Mayank Agarwal made an impact not only on field with his KXIP squad but he has also grabbed limelight on social media with his quirky tweet on ‘KarwaChauth‘.
KXIP’s opener Mayank Agarwal idolizes former team India batsman Virender Sehwag which is clearly evident through his fearless knocks & ability to change the game single handedly. However Mayank follows Sehwag not only in cricket but also imitating his sense of humor which is evident from his recent tweet on ‘KarwaChauth‘. “Love, laughter & good luck to everyone celebrating. May this #KarwaChauth be super special for you & your partner. P.S : Congratulations to all the husbands for renewal of their life insurance,” the tweet read.
Mayank has a superlative stint during this year IPL season. He was the second highest run scorer for his franchise KXIP in the IPL 2020. Mayank also ensured an attacking start of the innings with constant flow of runs. The 29 year old finished his season with 424 runs in 11 matches at an astounding strike rate of 156.45 and average of 38.54.
KXIP has displayed spectacular performances in the end of the league matches but still finished sixth on the Points table after facing a defeat against CSK in their final league match. KXIP seemed was in a poor form at one stage but made a solid comeback after the inclusion of the “Universe Boss” i.e. Chris Gayle in their squad. Gayle’s maturity & ability to make an impact under pressure, helped KXIP to stay in contention for a playoffs berth, which seemed impossible at one stage.
Captain KL Rahul was the highest run getter for his franchise scoring 670 runs in 14 matches at a strike rate of 129.34 and average of 55.83. Fast bowler Mohammed Shami fetched the most number of wickets with 20 dismissals in just 14 matches at a strike rate of 16.10 and average of 23.
