On Friday, in a match against Uttar Pradesh, Cheteshwar Pujara brought an end to UP’s innings by taking the wicket of Mohit Jangra on the second day. What surprised everyone was the manner in which Pujara celebrated his wicket because he is not one of those who react much but he ran a short sprint and then punched the air to show his happiness.
Pujara who has played 75 Test Matches and 5 ODIs for the country took to Instagram and posted this beautiful moment with the caption, “The day when I changed my Batsman status to an All-rounder ”.
Let’s check out the post:
Pujara has bowled only six deliveries in his whole International career.
While Pujara was over excited when he took his wicket, Shikhar Dhawan trolled him hilariously and quoted that he should also run fast between the wickets just as he ran the sprint. He also congratulated Pujara for his wicket and wrote, “Bhai kabhie itne tez sprint running karte waqt bhi maar liya kar. Well bowled waise .”
R Ashwin also congratulated him and wrote, “Incredible!! It’s time to bowl more”
