Commentator Kerry O' Keefe has made a demeaning remark on India's first class cricket while discussing Mayank Agarwal’s credentials on the first day of the third Test. While commenting on Agarwal’s triple hundred against Maharashtra in the Ranji Trophy, O’Keefe said, “Apparently he got the triple against the Railways canteen staff.” He also added that the bowlers from the said team were "chefs and waiters". Mark Waugh also had said that Mayank’s average of 50 in India is like 40 in Australia.
After watching the T20 world record of 6 sixes on 6 balls of an over and then reading the honours received by the same bowler with no mention of that record!
He was appointed a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in the 2016 Birthday Honours for services to cricket.
