New Delhi: The condition of the Indian team is very bad in the third test being played between Team India and England. In the first innings, the Indian team could score only 78 runs, after which the England team made 423 runs in the first innings and India fell behind by 354 runs. It seemed that the game would be over on the third day itself but the batsmen of the Indian team showed a good game.
Pujara hits half century
After 354 runs behind, the condition of Team India was not looking good but Rohit Sharma and Pujara together did wonders. After the early dismissal of KL Rohul, Rohit Sharma and Cheteshwar Pujara took over the team. While Rohit returned to the pavilion after hitting a half-century, Pujara did a brilliant batsman and completed his fifty after a long time.

Pujara stops talking about Michael Vaughan
Pujara was a flop in the first innings of the third Test, he scored just 1 run. After which he was getting a lot of criticism. On this, former England captain Michael Vaughan has given a controversial statement in the BBC Test Match Special Podcast about Indian batsman Cheteshwar Pujara, who is struggling with poor form. Michael Vaughan said that Cheteshwar Pujara has lost his mind. Vaughan said, ‘It seems that Pujara has lost his mind and has also forgotten his technique. He only plays to stand at the crease. Anderson dismissed him brilliantly. The ball was swinging very well and there was pressure on Pujara.
Pujara’s befitting reply to critics
Pujara was dismissed for just one run in the Headingley Test. The last century from Pujara’s bat came two years ago. Cheteshwar Pujara’s form has been very bad since the year 2020. During this, he has batted at an average of less than 25. His bat has remained silent in the Test series against England as well. Now by batting brilliantly in the second innings of the third Test, he shut everyone’s mouth.

Pujara’s strike rate is close to 50. Incredibly aggressive innings for his style of batting. That happens when you bat for long time with Rohit Sharma. Legend for a reason!
