Talking about Cheteshwar Pujara, Ravi Shastri said during a conversation with Cricbuzz, I have said before and am still saying that he is a warrior. He is like a soldier to me.

Shastri further said, “Pujara is a very calm player who can be fatal whenever needed. He has contributed a lot to Indian cricket. Wish him all the very best for his 100th test. His slow batting is his biggest strength. He has the ability to handle India’s top order for a long time. After Dravid’s retirement, only Pujara could fill his place.”
