The England County Division cricket has always been of great help to aspiring cricketers who are waiting for a spot in Test cricket for their nation. The Indian middle order batsman Cheteshwar Pujara, who has been inconsistent with the bat has proved his worth with a century in one of the County matches.
Pujara who plays for Yorkshire is not a part of the IPL and is playing in England in a bid to improve his Test match skills. He scored a century in 163 balls where he sent the ball 12 times to the boundary and once over the boundary. Pujara who slammed his ton on the third day of a county match also got a start in his first innings but threw it away which has been his biggest nemesis.
Pujara who plays at number 3 for Yorkshire could manage a mere 17 runs after facing over 80 balls and scoring 3 boundaries in the process. However when he came into bat in the second innings, he looked in a different mood and scored his century with ease, showing that he is capable of playing all the shots in the book.
Pujara, who was playing for Derbyshire in the previous season switched sides and had a debut to forget losing his wicket for a duck. However he later scored an important half century to rescue his team from trouble after trailing Nottingham by 428 runs in the first innings.
