Australia vs India 3rd Test Melbourne: Australian cricketer turned commentator Kerry O’Keefe faced the heat on social media after he ridiculed debutant Mayank Agarwal’s 304* in First Class cricket. O’Keefe said this while he was doing commentary for Fox Sports at the Melbourne Cricket Ground during the ongoing Boxing Day Test between Australia and India. Agarwal scored a fabulous 76 on his Test debut before Pat Cummins got rid of him. O’Keefe said that his 304* came against ”waiters”. As expected, it did not go down well with fans who ripped the commentator on Twitter over his comments. He was commentating with Mark Waugh, who said Agarwal’s FC average of upwards of 50 a is like 40 in India.
Here is how Twitter responded.
Before getting dismissed, debutant Mayank produced a confident 76-run knock as India made a steady start to the third Test against Australia at the MCG. The visitors did not put many runs on the board, taking tea ay 123 for two, as the batsmen largely remained cautious in the first two sessions. At the time of filing the copy, India were 174/2 with Kohli on 32* and Pujara on 50*.
