new Delhi: The new wall of Indian Test cricket, a batsman like Cheteshwar Pujara, is not present in the initial form of cricket. But if it is white ball cricket or IPL, then Pujara has so far failed to leave his mark in these formats. Meanwhile, Cheteshwar Pujara has broken the silence on his own not being selected in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and has opened many secrets. It is known that Cheteshwar Pujara is currently the best Test player in India.
Like me, Amla is also not bought in IPL – Pujara
It is worth noting that during a recent media interview, Cheteshwar Pujara has said that he does not regret not being bought during the IPL auction. According to Pujara, the South African veteran batsman Hashim Amla and many other best players are missing the franchise during the IPL auction.
Meanwhile, I do not bother about it. However, I feel bad when people say that I am only a player of the red ball. I have shown in limited overs domestic cricket that I am also adept at playing with the white ball.
Pujara said that I believe that I should get a chance so that I show amazing performance in limited overs cricket too. I count those IPL batsmen whose strike rate is less than 110. But I believe in my ability that I can score at a fast pace.
Cheteshwar Pujara figures in IPL
Cheteshwar Pujara had helped Team India a lot in winning the Test series 2–1 on the 2018–19 tour of Australia (IND vs AUS 2018–19). During this time, he had scored more than 500 runs. On the other hand, if you look at the figures of Cheteshwar Pujara in the Indian Premier League, then he has scored 390 runs in 30 IPL matches at a strike rate of 99.7.
This is the reason that no IPL franchise shows interest in Cheteshwar Pujara during the IPL auction. But we all know very well how great Cheteshwar Pujara is.
