Talking on Star Sports show Cricket Connected, former India pacer Ashish Nehra is of the opinion that Agarwal will learn from his experiences in New Zealand. "It takes time and New Zealand is not an easy place. With my experience, for batters, the most difficult place on this planet when it comes to cricket-playing nations is New Zealand.

"New Zealand has always been tough, so Mayank Agarwal, I am sure he has learnt a lot from the New Zealand tour. And it was not only for him, and for everyone, it was a challenge. He has shown promise, there is no doubt about it. And its early days in his career, you have to give everyone time."

Nehra went on to say that he has come through the ranks, and hence will prove himself and will eventually get better with time.

"He has done really well in domestic games and India-A and that’s how he got his chance. He is not somebody who has been playing domestic cricket for one or two years and suddenly he comes to the scene. He has scored a lot of runs and am sure with time he will get better and better."
