Was one of my best innings in 50-over format: Pujara

Sussex’ skipper Cheteshwar Pujara reflects on his century against Warwickshire

Despite not featuring for India in the white-ball formats since 2014, Cheteshwar Pujara put on a masterclass in Birmingham against Warwickshire. Sussex’s skipper who walked out to bat at 112/2, took on the Warwickshire bowling unit with some impressive attacking strokes. The Indian batter during his stay at the crease, showed a wide range of shots, including the ramp. 

While his side, Sussex fell short by just four runs, Pujara’s efforts were stunning, with the right-hander getting 26 runs off Liam Norwell’s over during the run-chase. Post the match, Pujara reflected on his innings, calling it his best in the 50-over format. 

“It was one of the best innings in the one-day format. But if it was in the winning cause, it would've been even better. We were not too far, I wanted to be there till the last ball, we would've had more chance of winning the game,” Pujara told Sussex on their YouTube video. 

“I was hydrating in between. There was a time when I was feeling a bit pukish. I think it's the weather. I'm used to playing in hot weather but it's never enough. I was trying my best,” Pujara said.

Pujara ended with 107 off just 79 balls, continuing his good form for Sussex, having scored 63 in the clash against Gloucestershire earlier in the month.
