Test cricket’s poster boy! Twitter lauds Pujara for ton at MCG

By Chaitanya Laxman

Indian batsman Cheteshwar Pujara continued his purple patch in the tour of Australia as he produced his second hundred of the series at MCG. Pujara’s solid and patient inning allowed India to post a mammoth total and dictate terms in the Boxing Day Test. Pujara was appreciated by former and current cricketers and fans for his gritty performance.

 

Pujara does it, Once again!

After India decided to play a make-shift opening pair at the MCG, it was obvious that the middle-order had an added responsibility on their shoulders.

And India’s number 03 batsman stood up and took the proceedings in his hand. Pujara batted with solid control on the first day and kept Patt Cummins at bay who was steaming in.

On the second day, the Indian batsman added valuable runs for the team and ensured Nathan Lyon remained ineffective. The right-hand batsman completed his hundred off 280 balls, his slowest of all 17 Test hundreds to stamp his dominance.

Pujara perished soon after completing his hundred, but by then the damage was already done and Australia were staring at a mammoth first-innings total.

 

Twitter in awe of Pujara’s brilliant performance

The Indian batsman yet again showcased his immense temperament and ability to bat for longer periods which has become a rarity in modern cricket.

The Melbourne wicket which looked flat on day one has started showing signs of deterioration. Some balls have kept low and there is rough as well which enables the visitors to believe that they have more than a chance to retain the Border-Gavaskar trophy after this Test.
