New Delhi. Team India (India v England, 4th Test), trailing by 99 runs in the first innings of the Oval Test, made a great comeback in the second innings. At the end of the third day’s play, India were 270 for 3 and they are now 171 ahead of England. The credit for Team India’s return to the Oval Test goes entirely to Rohit Sharma and Cheteshwar Pujara. Both batsmen have batted well. On foreign soil, Rohit Sharma scored his first Test century and scored 127, while Pujara scored a half-century in the second Test in a row and 61 came from his bat. However, Pujara was not satisfied with his innings and after the match the Indian batsman said he wanted to score a century in the fifth Test.
Cheteshwar Pujara told Sky Sports after the match that he was happy to score a half-century in the second innings of the Oval Test. Puja was questioned about his injury. In fact, while batting, Pujar’s leg was twisted and he batted with a bandage. Pujara said, ‘I still have pain in my legs but it is a sweet pain. Even if the legs are a little swollen, the real condition will be known tomorrow.
Pujara said the openers had a good start
Cheteshwar Pujara described India’s good position in the Oval Test as a gift to the openers. Let me tell you that Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul shared an 83-run partnership for the first wicket. Pujara said, ‘The openers gave a solid start and their batting gave the incoming batsmen the confidence to do well. When I went out to bat, the ball was not moving much and the situation was good for batting. Rohit and I came to the crease and talked about constantly increasing the scoreboard. We had a good partnership over lunch and tea break sessions.
Pujara said- everyone was waiting for Rohit Sharma’s century
Cheteshwar Pujara has praised Rohit Sharma’s batting. He said, ‘Rohit Sharma was in form for the whole series. He also scored two fifties, we were waiting for his big innings and he did it in the Oval Test. It was fun to stand on the non-strike and watch his batting. India is now in a good position in his batting.
Pujara said of his batting, ‘My rhythm is coming back. My footwork is fine now. I’m trying to concentrate more. It feels good to run. But I am looking forward to the century, hopefully I can play big innings in the next Test.
