Michael Vaughan’s controversial statement on Pujara
Michael Vaughan has made a controversial statement in the BBC Test Match Special Podcast about Indian batsman Cheteshwar Pujara, who is struggling with poor form. Michael Vaughan says 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.
Didn’t spare Rohit Sharma either
Michael Vaughan did not stop here, he has also targeted Team India. Michael Vaughan said, ‘Indian batsmen did not play good shots against swing bowling. I think Team India got a bit stuck. Especially surprised to see Rohit Sharma. He is a very good player, but he too was just struggling to stand on the wicket. Ravindra Jadeja also played for survival. At the same time, Rishabh Pant played only a half shot.
Pujara’s bat has been silent for a long time
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.
