While many feel that he was not out and the umpire made an unfair decision, on the other hand, there are many who thinks the umpire wasn’t wrong.

Mayank Agarwal departs now, no evidence on Hotspot but Snicko shows a spike! India 96/3 now, Rahane joins Virat.

That's just bullshit right there. Hotspot has no signal and RTS had the spike because the bat scratches the ground. This no conclusive shit needs to be changed. Mayank Agarwal robbed. #NZvIND

Mayank Agarwal has been an underrated player for long, but he has always proved his worth in longer formats. Churning out runs and balls.
1000 runs in his 10th test for an opener. Mostly in SENA countries.#INDvsNZ @BCCI @imVkohli
