Virat Kohli was all praise for Cheteshwar Pujara after his back to back tons in the on-going test series against Sri Lanka.
According to Virat, Pujara’s efforts are more commendable because he is not someone who is in the Indian squad for limited-over Cricket.
So when the team plays 50-over and 20-over Cricket, he has to be out of action, but, he doesn’t relax during that gap and ensures that he keeps himself in great batting rhythm all the time.
Most of the batsmen, when they return to the international level after a gap, can’t quite find the middle of the bat straightaway, but, Pujara is really an exception. It doesn’t take him any time at all to start middling the balls.

Keaton Jennings, England’s opener, had struck a century on debut.
However, it was not to last for a long time as Ravichandran Ashwin, India’s off-spinner, led a fight back to pick up four late wickets that left the visitors with 288-5 on the first day of the fourth test, played on Thursday precisely, at the Wankhede Stadium.
Trailing 2-0 in the five match series, the touring visitors had been cruising on 230-2 which had been made possible by Jennings who made 112 after being dropped on nought.
However, a large first inning total on track was not in sight for England as the world’s top ranked test bowler, Ashwin picked up four wickets, thus pegging back the tourists.
Honours were even at stumps as Ben Stokes remained unbeaten on 25, while Jos Buttlerstayed on at 18.
