Among the many senior gamers who had been launched by the Indian Premier League (IPL) franchises forward of the 2023 public sale, Punjab Kings’ Mayank Agarwal was a giant identify.

Former India participant Sanjay Manjrekar shared his views after Agarwal was launched by Punjab Kings. “See, it is a very fascinating case with Mayank Agarwal, for one, the worth tag would not assist whenever you’ve had a foul season. There is a temptation of releasing that participant and utilizing that cash to could also be rebuy or you recognize, take a look at an alternative choice. However the factor about Mayank Agarwal. An excessive amount of of a pleasant man, and this recreation just isn’t for good guys,” Sanjay Manjrekar mentioned on Star Sports activities.
“I imply he had an exceptional couple of seasons on the high of the order with KL Rahul. He really out-batted KL Rahul on the high place, grew to become the captain and ideally you’d need yet one more 12 months for a man to show himself. And the worst factor that would have occurred to him was that he sacrificed his opening place the place he was phenomenal, and went down the order. Which meant that batting grew to become tougher and the runs did not come, the strain constructed up. So, I really feel sorry for him, however he’ll be a really very enticing proposition for groups on the lookout for an opener, as a result of that is the man who’ll get you large scores and at a strike price of 150, 160 and good towards each spin and tempo.”
