Gone are those days when we used to watch Rahul Dravid making the opposition toil hard to bowl at him. He used to be the most irritating batsman for a fast bowler, as he just keeps on leaving the deliveries and also uses less scoring shots to make life hard. After a fine time, India once again got a similar player like him. He is none other than Cheteshwar Pujara.
Cheteshwar Pujara, the often headliner in the ongoing Test series between Australia and India. The stylish right-handed batsman has knocked it brilliantly to make things happen for India in the ongoing series. He is the current leading run-scorer of the bilateral series and also bagged three centuries to his name.
Adelaide Century is special of all:
Speaking of the special century, Cheteshwar Pujara picked that the Adelaide ton would remain special for him more than the centuries at MCG and SCG. He believes that Adelaide century helped India to get the winning start and set the tone for the team to go positively into the 4-match series, which is very important.
On Nathan Lyon asking ”Aren’t you bored?”
When asked if Nathan Lyon was the first bowler to ask him, Pujara replied that it has happened three times in his career, Mostly, in the Ranji Trophy when he scored triple centuries for Saurashtra cricket. Recently, in the SCG Test, Nathan Lyon also asked Pujara the same.
I don’t watch cricket much:
Further, Cheteshwar Pujara revealed that he won’t watch the game of cricket much. When asked whether he would pay for himself to watch his game, Pujara revealed that he would do that if the game is pretty much important for India.
Pujara has been in outstanding form in Australia. Last month, he had bailed India out of trouble with a sublime 123 at the Adelaide Oval before another half-century in the second innings ensured India had enough on the board to secure a historic win. Now, he registered a stunning 193 at Sydney.
