Cheteshwar Pujara: Mr. Classic

Now comes the call for Cheteshwar Pujara. As usual would he get a place in the Final Playing Eleven is a question. It is common in recent times that a Player is given a debut call and after the Series, he is dropper just like Abhimanyu Mithun. What wrong did Mithun do to be dropped?

Ok. Let me not get into this debate as this mainly focuses on Pujara- his style, temperament and mainly his class. Oh! This Batsman can also be tagged as Mr. Patient. In these days of T20 power hitting, Pujara is a player with patience along with aggression. I believe, he is completely a tailor made player for Test Cricket.

Pujara has been knocking the test door since some time now. He has been signed up by the Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL. After his excellent performance in Domestic Circuit, he went on to score a triple century in Ranji trophy and even in CK Nayudu U-22 tournament for Saurashtra.

He has played 49 Domestic 5 day matches scoring a whooping 3925 with 60.38. This is a great average for Test game. Not only this, in One Day domestic he has played 44 matches with an average of 57.08 scoring 1941 runs. This is purely

From the stat, we find a Great batsman with terrific  skills in Cheteshwar Pujara with temperament, technique, style. Will he be the next big star is a question and will be answered in Indo- Aus series.

He is going to play in the team in the likes of Sehwag, Tendulkar, Laxman and Dravid. Yes, they are big huge names. But, there will be some tears shed for Yuvraj as Pujara has taken his place.

But Yuvraj didn’t do enough to cement his place once Ganguly retired. Now, he has payed the price for it. Suresh Raina recently replaced Yuvraj and did excellently well but not strong enough.

Hoping that Cheteshwar Pujara gets to play in the XI and does well.
