Indore, Nov 15: Mayank Agarwal's double hundred 243 has put India on top on day two of the first innings against Bangladesh with 493/6 at stumps after 114 overs here at the Holkar Cricket Stadium here on Friday.

India lead by 343 runs with 4 wickets remaining in the innings.

When stumps was called off Jadeja 60 and Umesh Yadav 25 were at the crease.

The 28-year-old Mayank completed his double ton smashing six and also scored his highest runs.

Earlier, Mayank had contributed 215 runs against South Africa in home series. This is his third century which includes two double centuries.

From 330 balls Mayank went on to add 243 runs which included 28 fours and 8 sixes.

With his second double ton in 12th innings, Mayank Agarwal surpassed the legendary Don Bradman (13 innings) in Test cricket to become the second-fastest batsman to take fewest innings to two 200s.
