Cheteshwar Pujara back in form and smashed a double century in county match| Cheteshwar Pujara: India’s most reliable batsman returns to form, hits double century

Cheteshwar Pujara Double Century: Cheteshwar Pujara, the most reliable batsman of the Indian Test team, was struggling with his poor form for some time. Pujara’s bat was not getting runs and for this reason his card was also cut from the Test team. But now this player has once again returned to strong form and can soon be seen playing for Team India again.

Pujara’s performance won hearts

Cheteshwar Pujara and captain Tom Haynes, who were trying to make a comeback in the Indian team, saw Sussex play a follow-on in the English County Championship Division 2 to hold Derbyshire to a draw. Pujara, playing his first match in the current season, scored an unbeaten 201 off 387 balls with the help of 23 fours, besides putting on a 351 run partnership for the third wicket with Haynes (491 balls, 22 fours) to help Sussex second. He scored 513 runs for three wickets in the innings.

Pujara back in form

Pujara (Cheteshwar Pujara) was dropped from the Indian Test team after the tour of South Africa. But now this player has once again knocked on the door of the selectors by hitting a double century on the soil of England. Derbyshire declared the first innings at 505 for 8, in response to which the Sussex team were bundled out for 174 in the first innings and were forced to follow-on. Pujara returned to the pavilion after scoring just six runs in the first innings.

Sussex’s bad condition in the county

The Sussexes are currently ranked last among eight teams in the County Championship Division 2 but have 13 points from two matches. The team had to face defeat against Nottinghamshire in their first match.
