Cheteshwar Pujara defied Australia’s bowling assault and overcame stifling stipulations on the Adelaide Oval with an impressive century at the opening day of the primary Check on Thursday.
India was once at risk of being bowled out affordably after reckless batting within the first two periods, however Pujara scored 123 runs because the guests reached stumps at 250 for nine.
The 30-year-old notched his 16th century and in addition handed five,000 Check runs. Simply prior to the shut of day’s play, Pujara was once run out through an immediate hit from Pat Cummins to finish his 246-ball innings.
Pujara performed with the decision and endurance missing from the remainder of Indian batsmen. He discovered a prepared toughen from Ravichandran Ashwin (25) because the pair blended for a 62-run seventh-wicket partnership.

Like in Southampton when he were given a 100, Pujara assaults simplest when he begins operating out of companions. Whilst others assault on intuition and out of lack of confidence. Smartly performed Pujara. 👏👏👏#MindOverMatter
