India vs Australia: Highlights
Pujara, instead of hasty, made a test innings essay, which was to be remembered to see other formats of the game. And he was rarely out of place, while other people around him either played strokes paid for paying attention to the continuous contact of the small game or for fishing in that evidence.
- Cheteshwar Pujara scored 123, nearly 50% of India’s first innings total in Adelaide
- Pujara stitched crucial partnerships with lower-order batsmen as India posted 250
- Sunil Gavaskar believes Pujara is an indispensable member of the Indian Test team
Pujara’s strike rate was a cause of concern for the Indian dressing room. He had failed to start in the England series earlier in the year for carrying poor form from a county season.
Cheteshwar Pujara’s 123 stands in the Adelaide Oval on the 1st day of 1st Test. It is not because he had to face the toughest conditions ever, but his fellow players, including captain Virat Kohli, failed to do well.
Actually, he stood like a rock in the pitch. It was a tribute to their likeness that, every wicket which fell a bad piece of bad stroke or fielding, he strengthened his resolve to make India better.
In the past, Pujara was criticized for his strike rate in Test cricket, but the great batsman Sunil Gavaskar believes that no one should talk about scoring rates in the longest format, especially In foreign circumstances.
He is a very strong player, which we have seen last year, he has come often, so he is also the half-opener who can make adjustments, he is the person who leaves the anchor when things are tough, ask someone and They will give importance to his contribution. Sunil Gavaskar Said.
He did not play a more important knock at the beginning of the series compared to Australia in the Adelaide Oval on Thursday against Australia. He could not take much time in the first test. Cheteshwar Pujara has not been able to pick up the Gauntlett with more certainty than making 123 runs on nine wickets with a score of 250 runs.
