Cheteshwar Pujara scored his 18th Test hundred in the ongoing Test match against Australia. Pujara once again batted with solidarity as he smashed his third century of the series. He is also the leading run-getter of the series as he has amassed 444 runs at an average of 74. Pujara has been in fine form and would like to continue in a similar fashion.
Meanwhile, Pujara has shown great determination to prove his mettle. Pujara scored 16 boundaries in his brilliant knock. The talisman right-hander made good use of his feet to get to the pitch of the ball when he was facing Nathan Lyon.
It is a fine knock from Cheteshwar Pujara.
The right-handed batsman from Saurashtra found the gap with perfection and once again showed the patience in his innings. Pujara was able to work the ball and punished the bad balls from the Australian bowlers.

Thus, he scored 194 in the opening Test match and was adjudged the Man of the match for his match-winning knock.
Furthermore, Pujara once again played a valiant knock of 106 runs off 319 balls in the third Test match at Melbourne Cricket Ground. Consequently, Pujara’s has been in top form and has played a big part in the ongoing series against Australia.

Here is how Twitter bow down to Cheteshwar Pujara:
Very happy for Pujara. Here is a player who knows his game inside out, is comfortable with who he is and how he plays and is just a simple, modest man. And that quality is a big part of his cricket.

suspect at this stage, the australians would rather babysit for pujara than bowl at him #AUSvIND

Cheteshwar Pujara, in this series, has batted and batted, and batted and batted. Then, batted and batted… And batted some more.
He is still batting! #AusvInd

The RESPECT you get as a cricketer for what @cheteshwar1 is doing in TEST CRICKET, is GREATER than any wonderfully skilful T20 innings.
Youngsters – look, learn & listen!

Chestashwar Pujara was dropped for the first test in England wrongly & he has made quite a statement in this series,living upto his reputation of being a technically solid player,if anyone deserved this form,it’s Pujara #AusvIndia

In many years, a player like Cheteshwar Pujara comes across, who stamps his authority not with aggression, pacey innings or 'intent', but with serenity, calmness and utter patience. Thank God for Pujara!!#AUSvIND

Now, naysayers will say rock-solid Cheteshwar Pujara has had to deliver. He has justified his go-slow approach. Test cricket is not about being reckless it's more about the resistance which eventually leads to reinforcement. He is such a bloke, what a ton! Cheers, Che! #AUSvIND
