Overwhelmed by the comparisons with Virender Sehwag after his 'dream debut' in Australia, Mayank Agarwal says he will be happy if he could do even half of what the former India opener achieved in his illustrious career.

Former India batsman Sanjay Manjrekar and his personal coach Irfan Sait are among those who feel that "there is a little bit of Sehwag" in Agarwal, who drew the flattering comparison with his aggressive style of play.

Drafted into the squad in the middle of a well-poised series, the 27-year-old rose to the occasion with a 77, 76 and 42 in Melbourne and Sydney, playing a crucial hand in India's maiden Test series triumph Down Under.
