Mumbai, July 12: Cheteshwar Pujara is one of India’s leading players in the Test team, but in the last few days, Pujara has come under a lot of criticism. Not only that, but the demand to remove him from the team is also gaining momentum. This is the reason why Pujara played slow in the World Test Championship (WTC Final). The Indian team is now resting in England after the match against New Zealand, but cricket fans do not see an opportunity to troll Cheteshwar Pujara.
In the Test against Zimbabwe, Bangladesh (Zimbabwe vs Bangladesh) won by 220 runs. This is followed by Takudzwanashe Kaitano of Zimbabwe. In the final innings of the match, Catano played 102 balls and scored only 7 runs, including one four. Catano batted with a strike rate of 6.86, which compared him to Pujara.
Catano batted similarly in the first innings. He was dismissed for 87 off 311 balls. Catano batted with a strike rate of 27.97, including 9 fours. Catano became the 12th player to play 400 balls in both innings in his debut Test.
Bad form of priest
Pujara took 36 balls to make his first run in the first innings of the World Test Championship final. Pujara was dismissed for 8 off 54 balls, while in the second innings, Pujara was able to score 15 off 80 balls. Pujara played 18 matches in the World Test Championship, scoring 841 runs at an average of 28.03, not scoring a single century and 9 half-centuries.
Virat Kohli also indirectly targeted Pujara after the World Test Championship final. “You can’t play with the worry of getting out every time, you have to take a little risk,” said Kohli. It is being said that Kohli’s statement has threatened Pujara’s place in the team.
In the upcoming Test series against England, Virat will play at number three and KL Rahul will play at number four, which will force Pujara to sit out.
