“This Kangaroo Bowler Was A Step Ahead Of My Plan For Historic Series”, Reveals Cheteshwar Pujara

India definitely won this historic series, but Pujara did not live up to the expectations. Pujara scored 271 runs in 8 innings of four Test matches at an average of 33.87 only.

Cheteshwar Pujara, a specialist and experienced batsman of the Indian Test team, is famous all over the world due to his patience and the art of playing steady. The 34-year-old left-handed batsman has pulled Team India out of difficult situations many times and has also played match-winning innings. This is the reason why the opposition teams try to turn the match in their favor by getting them out as quickly as possible.

It is not easy for any bowler to get Pujara out as he does not bat as fast as modern day cricketers and slowly progresses the innings. However, Australia’s star and veteran spinner Nathan Lyon has been one bowler who troubled Pujara a lot. 

The Indian batsman told in a documentary how Lyon troubled him in the India-Australia Test series in 2020-21. He praised the Australian spinner, describing him as a world-class bowler. Pujara said that he is a world class bowler. He knew what my game plan would be. This time he had watched all my videos from the 2018-19 series. After that he changed a lot and prepared to challenge me. His speed and line length were also different. He wanted me to go ahead with every ball. He made things very difficult for me and hit my game plan. 

Significantly, Pujara was the most successful batsman for India in the 2018-19 series. He scored 521 runs in four Tests. During this he faced 1135 balls and also scored three centuries. Whereas after this in 2020-21, he was seen struggling a lot. He then scored 272 runs thanks to three half-centuries. This time he was dismissed by Lyon once while he was out five times by Cummins. 

Pujara struggled in the series,

but…India definitely won this historic series, but Pujara did not live up to the expectations. Pujara scored 271 runs in eight innings of four Test matches at an average of 33.87 only. Three fifties came off his bat, but despite his low average, Pujara remained the second highest run-scorer in the series for India after Rishabh Pant. And the difference between Pant and them was only three runs, while Rahane was at number three with 268 runs.
