New Delhi. Legendary Indian Test batsman Cheteshwar Pujara proved to be a flop again. Pujara returned to the pavilion with just runs in the first innings of the fourth Test of the series against England. Pujara, known as India’s ‘new wall’, had high hopes for the match, but was caught behind the wicket by James Anderson.
England captain Joe Root won the toss and elected to bat first in the Test at Kennington Oval in London. James Anderson started bowling in the innings. India got the first two wickets and they lost the wickets of Rohit Sharma (11) and KL Rahul (17) for just 28 runs. Pujara came down to bat at number three. He was able to play only 31 balls and fell victim to Anderson.

Anderson made Pujara a victim for the 11th time in his career and he surpassed Nathan Lyon in taking the most wickets of this legendary batsman. Lion has taken Pujar wicket 10 times. Pat Cummins 7 and Josh Hazlewood have outscored Pu Bar Pujara.
Playing the 30th Test match of his career, Pujara had to return to the pavilion in the fourth ball of the 20th over of the innings. With the edge of his bat, the ball went straight into the Bearstore gloves. India’s third wicket team’s score fell and its condition began to look bad. Then Virat Kohli brought Rabindra Jadeja to bat at number 5. At lunch on the first day, India lost 3 wickets and scored 54 runs in 25 overs. Then Virat was at the crease after scoring 18 and Jadeja 2 runs.
