A former Indian hitter and veteran Indian coach said Cheteshwar Pujara received instructions from management and supported him to perform well given what he got for Indian cricket.
Cheteshwar Pujara feels the heat, make no mistake about it. Formerly, the pillar of the intermediate order of India has struggled for some time with indifferent forms. He’s gone over 40 poll rounds without a century, and the 1950s aren’t as common as they used to be. Pujara’s bat count has increased and, more importantly, he’s struggling to consolidate the innings he was once used to.
In the absence of Rohit Sharma, Pujara’s role promises to become even more important. In view of the first test between India and South Africa which begins on Sunday, the 33-year-old hopes to regain the form which saw him eliminated 153 years ago in Durban. While Pujara will likely be part of India’s Playing XI, there will be pressure on him, according to former Indian batter Pravin Amre.
The veteran Indian coach said Pujara had received instructions from management and supported him to do well given what he had accomplished for Indian cricket. “I’m sure Cheteshwar (Pujara) got messages from the team management. I read it in the media. He scored 6589 points in the cricket test.
All the points he scored are hard He won test matches in India. “He has experience and scored points when Team India needed them, it was not easy for him.He played his part in winning the test matches, ”Amre told CricketNext in an interview.
Amre further stated that while Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane may struggle with poor form, the average drive due is good enough to come back between races at any time. The Mumbai and Delhi Capitals manager has pointed out their past glories and is confident that Rahane and Pujara are doing well.
