India vs Australia, ADELAIDE OVAL: On Thursday, An Indian salvage mission apparently personalized for Virat Kohli rather tumbled to Cheteshwar Pujara who took his Captain’s ‘Superman’ cape and struck an imperative century to spare the tourists on the very first series-opening Test against Australia.
After Kohli was cleared away with just three runs in a whirlwind of inauspicious shot-making, Cheteshwar Pujara cuts out a shining of 123 runs to manage India with a total of 250 for 9 at stumps. Fighting a hamstring strain in the last session, the 30-year-old Saurashtra player delivered a master class in game supervision through his 246-ball knock.
Cheteshwar Pujara dashed past 5,000 Test runs and in transit scored one of his greatest hundreds of years on Thursday, with the accomplished number three crediting a stretch at Yorkshire for helping him get ready.
