Cheteshwar Pujara

Run Machine | Defensive Batsman


Pujara was a prolific run-machine in every grade of cricket since childhood and starred in India's ICC U19 Cricket World Cup campaign in 2006. 

He was touted as a batting genius capable enough of replacing the great batsman Rahul Dravid, and was seen as one of the most promising talents in the country. While most modern Indian cricketers have swashbuckling style of play, Pujara possesses the rare, old-school, Dravid-like temperament and technique.

He was a part of the India A team which toured England in the 2010 summers, and was the highest scorer of the tour.

In October 2011, the BCCI awarded him a 'C-grade national contract'. He is known to have a sound technique and the temperament required to play long innings, he was one of the contenders for a spot in the Indian middle order after the retirement of Rahul Dravid and VVS Laxman. 

He made his first double hundred against England at Ahmedabad in November 2012 and followed up with another double hundred against Australia in March 2013, both the times steering India to victory and becoming man of the match.
