Appreciating his innings, Sanjay Bangar said,
“Rohit Sharma reminds me of Cheteshwar Pujara with his strong defence. The way Pujara beat Australia in Australia. Exactly the same way Rohit played this innings against the spinners.”
Pujara was instrumental in both India’s series wins against the Australian fast bowlers on the 2017 and 2021 tours.
