Cheteshwar Pujara scores century off just 73 balls

Pujara went on to score 107 runs off just 79 balls in the Royal London One-Day Cup

Once labelled a Test specialist, Cheteshwar Pujara is changing his game style, much to the delight of his fans.  Pujara has been in amazing form this season for Sussex. He first scored five centuries for the team in the County Championship Division 2 and as a result, he was chosen to lead the team. Pujara carried this form in the One-Day format as well.

The modern wall of India registered a century against Warwickshire in the Royal London One-Day Cup on Friday in a Group A clash. In the match, Sussex was chasing 311 and Pujara walked into bat with the side being 112/2 in the 22nd over. Pujara went on to score 107 runs off just 79 balls. This knock was laced with the help of 7 fours and 2 sixes. His innings also included 22 runs from one over. It came off the 45th over bowled by Liam Norwell.

Pujara then went on to bring his century in the 48th over of the innings, and his knock finally came to an end in the 49th over as he was clean bowled by Hannon-Dalby. Pujara’s knock was not enough to take Sussex over the line as the side fell four runs short at Edgbaston. However, Pujara’s innings will be helpful in eliminating the tagline of a defensive batter.
