Cheteshwar Pujara is known for his resilience and patience. He has played a crucial part in India’s test success in recent years. The other stroke makers can freely play from the other as he stands like a rock from one end.
Pujara names the toughest bowler he faced
Not many bowlers have been able to breach through the defense of the Indian number 3. In a recent interview for EspnCricinfo, Pujara named the toughest bowler he has faced in the current generation. He said that the Australian captain Pat Cummins is the toughest bowler he has faced in the modern era.
“Pat Cummins would be the toughest bowler to face in cricket currently,”
said Pujara while speaking to ESPNCricinfo in a question and answer segment.
The battle between Cheteshwar and Pat Cummins during the last 2 Border Gavaskar Trophies was epic In the Gabba test, Pujara withstood the short ball barrage of Pat Cummins and took various bruises on his body. Both of them have hardly given an inch while facing each other and the battle between them is very mouth watering.
Pujara vs Cummins head to head
The Australian pacer has dismissed Pujara 7 times in the 17 innings they faced each other.
Cummins is the number one test bowler with 878 points. The best fast bowler of the modern era will clash against the resolute Mr. Dependable of the Indian Cricket Team Cheteshwar Pujara. The face off between the two players will likely decide the outcome of the series as Cheteshwar will tire out the Australian bowlers as he did in the last 2 series.
