Cheteshwar Pujara lived it up with Sussex in April-May. He scored two twofold centuries and two tons for Sussex and got back in the saddle to the Indian cricket team for the fifth rescheduled Test match against England. Presently the veteran player has again joined Sussex and is right now playing in the County Championship Division Two against Leicestershire. Be that as it may, on Wednesday, Pujara was seen wearing another cap. He struck one during Day 3’s play and surrendered eight runs. He was hit for a boundary too by Leicestershire’s Wiaan Mulder.
Prior, Pujara bowled one in Test cricket as well. In First-Class cricket, Pujara has got six wickets in 21 innings.
Before Pujara’s most memorable spell with Sussex, he played three Ranji matches for Saurashtra, and scored 91 in the first of those games against 41-time champions Mumbai. It was starting there, Pujara says he knew “everything had returned to typical.”

“It’s about playing as many first-class games as possible and for me I think the experience was very important. Because when you want to get back into form, when you want to find your rhythm, when you want to find your concentration, it’s important to have some long innings. When I was playing for Sussex, once I had the first big knock against Derby then I felt that my rhythm was back. My concentration and everything started falling in place,”Pujara said in a video on BCCI.tv.
“When you want to perform for your team, you need to apply yourself. When you play competitive cricket, you learn so many things. But sometimes you need that experience, you need that time in the middle and that is most important.”
“I was preparing for this event back home. Even before, I joined the Sussex team. I played three Ranji Trophy games for Saurashtra. Even in that, I found my rhythm. I knew that I was batting well. It was about getting a big score under my belt. When I had that in my first game, I knew that everything was back to normal now. I am finding my footwork. My backlift, everything was coming along well. After that, I just wanted to enjoy my game. Try and make sure you contribute to the team’s success. Most important thing is to have a good time on the field.”Pujara expressed
