No matter what anyone says, Pujara has hopes of victory in the third Test! said…
The third Test match between India and Australia is being played at the Holkar Stadium in Indore. After winning the first two matches of the series, the Indian team seems to be in trouble in the third Test. Australia need just 75 runs to win the third Test. India’s second innings ended on 163 runs. Other batsmen in the team failed, but Cheteshwar Pujara completed his half-century. Although victory looks difficult for India, Pujara has faith in the bowlers.
On the second day of the match, the second innings of the Indian team ended. Cheteshwar Pujara, India’s leading run-scorer, spoke to the media after the second day’s play. At this time, Pujara said, “This pitch is difficult for batsmen. The pitch is not easy and you have to trust the defense (bowlers). You need to reach the ball to stay on the pitch. Also the short ball should be played on the back foot. 75 is not a big score, but still a chance to win.”
Pujara further said about his batting, “If you keep defending on a pitch like that, a ball might bounce and hit your gloves. You must maintain a proper balance between attack and defense. Whenever I got a loose ball, I tried to keep it away from me. When he (Nathan Lyon) bowled round the wicket, his line changed a bit. He was bowling on leg stump instead of off stump. I was just doing strike rates. I wanted to bowl at scare leg, but the pitch was slow so the ball went to leg stump. Amazing catch by Steve Smith.”
Meanwhile, there are still three days to go in this Test match between the two teams, but with both the Indian innings over, Australia is very close to victory. It will be very difficult for the Indian bowlers to defend 75 runs. (ind vs aus 3rd test Cheteshwar Pujara’s special reaction after the second day’s play)
