Sunil Gavaskar’s Message to Pujara: Score a ton in 100th game


Sunil Gavaskar honored Pujara in his 100th Test match, who has played a significant role in the Indian Test team. He achieved this milestone during the ongoing Border-Gavaskar Trophy.

Gavaskar said:

I wish and pray you that you become the first Indian to score a big hundred in your 100th Test and lay the foundation for yet another win in Delhi.”


“Cheteshwar, when we are playing as kids growing up, whether we are playing at home or down on the streets or in the maidans, we are all dreaming of playing for India and eventually when we do play for India, it’s an unbelievable feeling. You want to do that over and over again and to do that you need a lot of hardwork. You need plenty of determination, plenty of self-belief to be able to lift yourself from lean periods. And then still focus on getting the job done. When you go out to bat, it looks as if you’re not just taking your bat with you, you are taking the Indian flag with you and you put your body on the line for India. You have taken the blows, you have got up and you have made the bowlers earn your wicket,”

Sunil Gavaskar said to Pujara.

Responding to Gavaskar, Pujara said:

“It is an honour to receive this cap from you. Legends like you have inspired me. I wanted to play for India as a youngster but I never thought I’d get to 100 Test matches. Test cricket is the ultimate format for me, it challenges you just like life. To all the youngsters, I’d encourage y’all to work hard to play Test cricket for India. I’d like to thank my wife, my family, everyone in BCCI and all my teammates who’ve supported me throughout this journey.”
