New Delhi: For a long time, the stars of Cheteshwar Pujara are in the dark. This Test specialist of India has not scored a single century for the last 2 years. Many veterans believe that if Pujara flops in the current India-England Test Series, then his card will be cut from Team India.
Pujara flop in current series
Cheteshwar Pujara scored 4 and 12 * in the Nottingham Test. At the same time, he returned to the pavilion after scoring just 9 runs in the first innings of Lord’s Test. Pujara is constantly struggling to return to form.

Pujara’s average also decreased
Former Pakistan captain Salman Butt has spoken openly about the current form of Cheteshwar Pujara. Significantly, after the year 2018, Pujara’s average is around 31, which is much less than his career average of 45. But the bigger concern is how he is getting out.
Surya gets a chance instead of Pujara
Salman Butt said on his YouTube channel, ‘Pujara is still struggling in this series. If Team India wants, then Suryakumar can give a chance to Yadav. It all depends on the decision of Virat Kohli and also on what the coach thinks.
‘It’s too early to remove Pujara’
Salman Butt further said, ‘So far Pujara has played 3 innings. I think it is too early to try this young man (Suryakumar) in such a difficult situation. It won’t be easy for them. On the other hand, Pujara is dependable and he has performed in such conditions before. Pujara has failed so far, but he should be given more chances in one test.
Sun and Earth in the Lord’s Balcony
Suryakumar Yadav and Prithvi Shaw were called to England in place of injured Washington Sundar and Shubman Gill. On Saturday, Surya and Prithvi were seen enjoying the match in the Lord’s Balcony.
