Cheteshwar Pujara Is Back To Scoring 100s And That's Excellent News For India With A Packed Season Ahead
India wrapped up the 1st Test vs Bangladesh on the last morning and won by 188 runs. They now lead the 2-0 match series 1-0, have retained the rubber and are gunning for a clean sweep when the next game begins on December 22.
One man who was back on the century radar in this encounter was our esteemed No. 3, Cheteshwar Pujara. Pujara after 52 Test innings, finally made it to 3 figures. The man made 102 not out in the 2nd innings to help India set a target in excess of 500.
In the first innings, Pujara missed out on a ton as he made 90. But it was enough to help India score over 400.
Pujara also displayed some unusual aggression during his ton as it came in just 130 balls, his fastest in the format. In fact, Pujara batted with a strike rate of nearly 80 and that’s just amazing.
This is good news for India with a packed schedule ahead. The race for the WTC final 2023 is hotting up and India face Australia in 4 crucial Tests early next year. With Pujara back in the groove, India’s top order gets a much-needed boost.
From being dropped to making a comeback, Pujara has earned his way to where he is. Now more such knocks are needed for India to keep on doing well.
