Indian batsman Cheteshwar Pujara continued his brilliant run in Test cricket as he had back to back successful overseas tours of South Africa, England, and Australia in the last 12 months.
The conventional Test player played a big part in India’s first ever Test series win in Australia recently as he scored 571 runs in 4 games at an average of 74.43.
In a recent interview, Indian batting great Sachin Tendulkar heaped praise on Pujara as he said that his batting at the top of the order laid the foundation of India’s historic series win.
“The bowlers have done extremely well too, but I think somewhere Pujara has been instrumental in laying that solid foundation on which a number of guys got runs. If I've to pinpoint that one guy, then Pujara stands out along with the fast bowlers,” he said.
Sachin also praised the Indian pacers who supported the batsmen quite well by taking wickets at crucial moments.
