Cheteshwar Pujara had recently been appearing in the newspaper columns for wrong reasons. Pujara was criticised for his lack of concentration and poor temperament. He did manage to change a few opinions during this series. He got solid starts on multiple occasions and helped in seeing off the new ball, which set up the platform for Kohli and Rahane to keep going. His last innings, where he scored his only century of the tour, capped off a series of good performances. He has also seemed to have upped his strike rate. If he continues to put in such performances, he can definitely be a nightmare to bowlers. He scored 373 runs at an average of 74.6.
