The Run Machine From Rajkot - Cheteshwar Pujara - A Brief Biography

When Rahul Dravid retired from international cricket, only one question plagued the minds of cricket analysts and lovers alike; WHO WILL FILL IN THE HUGE VOID? The answer came in the form of a run machine from Rajkot. Cheteshwar Arvind Pujara. After piling on a huge number of runs in the domestic scheme of things, Pujara was called in to fill in for the great Rahul Dravid in 2010 against the mighty Aussies. Pujara made the opportunity count and scored a magnificent 72 in a rather tricky fourth inning run chase.

As they say, like father like son, Pujara learnt to love the gentleman’s game seeing his father Arvind Pujara competing at the Ranji level. He learnt not only to love the game but also to make sure that he justifies the love by performing well and consistently at that. Pujara excelled at all age level cricket to make sure he lives his now fulfilled dream of representing his country internationally.

Apart from some great techniques and skilful strokes, what perhaps make Pujara an apt replacement of Dravid is his cool temperament and his ability to do well in whatever limitations he has. Representing Saurashtra in the domestic level, he has made sure that his appetite for runs remains and grows stronger with every passing game.

Pujara’s stint at the IPL has been stricken with injuries. He sustained a serious knee injury while fielding for RCB in a match against the Kochi Tuskers Kerala. But the injury was nothing compared to his will and eagerness to play and play well. Pujara has not only recovered well from the injury but also notched up some really impressive performances. He is currently set to represent Saurashtra in the C.K. Naidu trophy.

With the perfect mix of skill and competence, Pujara is one to lookout for in the future scheme of things for India.
