Team India do the ‘Pujara Dance’: The Indian cricket team was seen doing the ‘Pujara Dance’ after their series win in Australia.
“We all deserve to enjoy. The celebrations, I assure you, will run long. The boys are physically and mentally drained, and we have no more alarm clocks in the morning,” India captain Virat Kohli was quoted as saying during the post-match presentation with respect to India not shying away from celebrating this historic triumph.
Kohli made sure that he matches his words with appropriate actions as he was seen dancing alongside the team as India were leaving the ground after the presentation ceremony.
While the players’ dance steps looked amusing in the first look, their origin was later revealed by Kohli during the press conference. “That was the Pujara Dance because when he walks he doesn’t move his hands. So, it more of an extension of his walk. Rishabh [Pant] came up with it and we just joined in,” Kohli said about the Indian team’s dance moves.
“It just felt good. It was very easy but Pujara couldn’t even do that. So, you can see how simple he is,” Kohli added amusingly.
While Cheteshwar Pujara also won the ‘Man of the Series’ award, it was good to know that his teammates also presented him with something intriguing in a dance form. The 30-year old right hand batsman scored 521 runs in four matches at an average of 74.42 and a strike rate of 41.41, including three centuries.

Looks like the Indians had a wonderful holiday here in Australia. Glad we treated them so well on and off the field. Chief nice guy Tim P, did a marvellous job, making sure the Indian batsmen were comfortable with his ‘friendly banter’. I’m sure 🇱🇰 can’t wait to meet our team.

I must say, this Twitter handle, along with it’s YouTube channel, is the best amongst dedicated cricket pages of countries. The BCCI handle is horrible and their YouTube channel is a joke. You guys truly care about cricket and promote it well. Keep up the great work. We need you

Plenty of us can’t dance and plenty of us can’t bat. Pujara is one lucky bloke👍
