Mayank Agarwal could not believe his eyes Friday when Marais Erasmus gave him out in the first session of Day 2 of the first Test against Bangladesh at Holkar Cricket Stadium. In the 47th over of India's first innings, Agarwal was looking to sweep Bangladesh off-spinner Mehidy Hasan for a boundary, but missed the ball. Hasan appealed and umpire Erasmus raised his finger, leaving the Indian opener shell-shocked by the decision.
The ball had hit him high on the pads in front of the leg stump. Agarwal consulted his teammate Ajinkya Rahane and opted for DRS. The ball-tracking showed that the ball was clearly missing the leg stump.
The 27-year-old was batting on 82 when the incident took place. He went on to hit his third Test century seemed set to become the third Indian batsman after Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli to score a double century against Bangladesh.
Earlier in the day, DRS went in Bangladesh's favour as Virat Kohli got out for a rare duck, trapped in front of the wickets by fast bowler Abu Jayed.
On Day 1, Agarwal was dropped by Imrul Kayes in slip cordon off Jayed's bowling on 32, which proved to be expensive for the visitors.
