Puhara was unable to add a single run to his overnight score.
After a series of low scores, Cheteshwar Pujara brought up his A-game and made a substantial inning in the ongoing third match against England. The “Modern Wall of India”, which was hit in 3rd place in the 3rd inning, held a batting exhibition without making a mistake. On the stump of the third day, he was undefeated at 91 and his long-awaited century was on the card.
However, on the fourth day, Puhara was unable to add one run to his overnight score and became a prey to Pollie Robinson. Therefore, he lacked nine runs in what would have been a wonderful hundred. Speaking of severance, it was the fourth time of the day and Robinson was manipulating with a second new ball. The pacemaker on the right arm bowled a sharp inswinger that completely surpassed Puhara.
Great UK review sends Cheteshwar Pujara back
The right-handed batter didn’t even try to play the ball, thinking he was far from the stump. However, his vacation turned out to be expensive as the ball broke the pad and Puhara fell forward. In particular, referee Richard Kettleborough did not judge him at first. England I had to go through a review to get a decision in their favor.
Hawkeye indicated that the ball would have hit the stump, and the decision was reversed. In this way, Puhara’s resilience is over. However, it cannot be denied that the 33-year-old made a sensational knock. It’s a test of Puhara’s personality, and he recently lacked a run. In addition, he put the duck in the bag in the first inning.
YES SSS Robo !!

After accepting a 352-run lead, India lost opener KL Rahul in 34 runs. However, Bukhara I came to Bat at number 3 and worked hard on an English bowler. Surprisingly, the veteran was more aggressive than usual because he played some aggressive shots in advance. But as Robinson explained his ticket gate, he continued waiting for Testton.
India, on the other hand, has seven wickets in hand, with a difference of more than 100 runs, so Puhara’s wickets can be a decisive point in the game. Therefore, it will be interesting to see how the rest of the contest bread is arranged. It should be noted that India has risen 1-0 after the first two games of the five-game series.
