England’s Cheteshwar Pujara back in form scores second double ton for Sussex – Cheteshwar Pujara’s return to Team India? 531 points scored in three matches in England
Cheteshwar Pujara, who went to England to try and find a rhythm to return to the Indian Test squad, is seen in fine form. He scored two double centuries in three county cricket matches. He marked three consecutive centuries. He has so far scored 531 runs in five sets of three matches. The veteran batsman was dropped from the Indian Test squad after losing the Test series in South Africa earlier this year.
In the four-day game against Durham in the County Championship Second Division, Pujara was dismissed for 203 carries on 334 balls on Saturday. The veteran batsman, who started the day with 107 runs, hit 24 fours in his innings. With the help of his double century, Sussex scored 538 runs to take a 315 run lead in the first innings.
Durham’s first inning was played for 223 runs. It was Pujara’s third century in five innings, looking to make a comeback in the Indian team. He scored six and an unbeaten 201 on his debut for Sussex, helping the side to a draw after a follow-up game against Derbyshire.
Pujara then played in innings of 109 and 12 against Worcestershire. However, in this game, his team faced a 34-point loss. Pujara, who was dropped from the Indian squad after the South Africa tour, may return to the squad for the final Test series game on the England tour due to this good pace.
Note that last year the last game of the five-game Test series was postponed. This match will be played this year. Games will be played July 1 through July 5 in Edgbaston. The Indian team has a 2-1 lead. India will play three T20Is and ODIs in England this year. The first T20 will be played on July 7.
