New Delhi: The first match of the 5-match Test series is being played between Team India and England. The Indian team showed a great performance on the first day of the first test but on the second day the whole game turned upside down. England’s team was all out for 183 runs in the first innings, after which it seemed that the visiting team would make a lot of progress. But on the second day James Anderson overturned the match. Anderson showed Cheteshwar Pujara and Indian captain Virat Kohli the way to the pavilion on two consecutive balls.
Pujar’s poor form continues
Team India started well in the first innings of the first Test, but after the wicket of Pujara, the whole game changed. Where Team India did not lose a wicket for 97 runs and then lost 4 wickets for 112 runs.
Pujara (Cheteshwar Pujara) once again proved to be a flop and was dismissed after scoring just 4 runs in 16 balls. This senior player has been failing for a long time. Even after his poor performance in the World Championship against New Zealand, Pujara was criticized a lot, but the fans were sure that he would do something amazing against England. But here too Pujara failed.
ANDERSON ON A HAT-TRICK!
Jimmy has two in two! After picking up Pujara for four, he now has the Indian captain Kohli first ball, also nicking behind.

Last century was scored in 2019
Cheteshwar Pujara scored his last international century in 2019. At that time, Pujara had scored 193 runs in the match played in Australia in January. Pujara scored the highest 521 runs in that series. Due to this strong performance of Pujara, India won the first series in Australia.
Fans furious at Pujara
Team India’s entire game changed with Pujara’s dismissal and cricket fans are upset due to his continuous failure on the field. As soon as he was out, fans started making fun of him on social media. One user even talked about his retirement.
Its time to give some rest for Pujara and replace the position with Suryakumar Yadav.There is nothing wrong in trying it#ENGvIND

I knew it.! Pujara has very less average in England, Vihari would’ve been better over him. Pujaras strength is against the spin, england is known for seam and swing. Vihari deserves a chance.

Score of two best test batsmen of the team –
4+0 = 4
Score of a “home track bully” who is not a test player according to many –

Questions will be raised now on Pujara’s presence in the team and his contribution.
