2015 was a decent year for India’s Cheteshwar Pujara as he cemented his place back into the Indian test side after being ignored. The Rajkot batsman was left out of the team as the management gave Rohit Sharma an extended run, but that definitely did not avail any benefits. Pujara struck back at his critics with an outstanding 145* against Sri Lanka in Colombo in the third test and carried his bat.

From there on, there has been no looking back for him. Recently, in a conversation, Pujara said that the tag of a “test specialist” was underwhelming for him as he had the ability to play in all the formats. “I’ve always believed that it’s only a perception that I could play only one way. Even in Test matches, when I get going, my strike rate is not that bad. I am very confident that I can be an equally good player in one-dayers and T20,” said Pujara.

Reiterating about 2015, Pujara said, “This year has been a productive one for me. I think I have managed to contribute to Indian team’s cause even though I haven’t scored a lot in the year.” “The Colombo innings was very satisfying as it helped the team win the game. The knock against South Africa in Mohali (78 in the second innings) was also very important,” he said.
