CHETESHWAR PUJARA

RHB, RLS

ABC Cricket - - PROFILES -

Amid the sea of multi-for­mat, rapid-fire hit­ters, Pujara is In­dia’s Test-spe­cific bolt at first drop, con­tent to em­ploy pa­tience and bloody-mind­ed­ness for his runs. He’s cur­rently the sixth-ranked Test bats­man in the ICC rank­ings, and has an av­er­age hov­er­ing around 50. But like Dhawan, he’ll face ques­tions in Aus­tralia about how well his bat trav­els, although he was one of the bet­ter per­form­ers in Eng­land.
