Cheteshwar Pujara Best Birthday Wishes: The ever-reliable Indian cricketer has been receiving heartwarming wishes since midnight.
India batsman Cheteshwar Pujara is celebrating his 33rd birthday today. Coming on the back of a historic series victory in Australia, Pujara has been receiving heartwarming birthday wishes since midnight.
In 81 Tests for India, Pujara has amassed 6,111 runs at an average and strike rate of 47.74 and 45.02 respectively. Been often criticized for his strike rate, it is the same aspect of his batting which has saved India on multiple occasions now.
Apart from crossing the 6,000-run mark down under, Pujara also surpassed former India batsman Gundappa Viswanath (6,080) in the list of most Test runs for India.
Pujara, who scored three invaluable half-centuries in the recently concluded series, took his total to 28 in Test cricket. In addition to this, the right-hand batsman has also crossed the 100-run mark 18 times in the same format.
While former India captain Rahul Dravid (10,524) has a significant lead at this point in time, Pujara sure has entered the list of most prolific No. 3 batsmen around the world. Currently the sixth-highest run-scorer in the list, Pujara’s 5,594 runs at No. 3 have come at an average of 48.64.
Expected to play a crucial role in the forthcoming Test series against England at home starting from February 5, India’s No. 3 batsman would be hoping to convert his starts into substantial knocks for he hasn’t scored a Test century for more than two years now.
