For those cricket fans worried on finding the replacement for position of Indian Cricket Wall Rahul Dravid, today’s test match of India with New Zealand provided the answer. Young boy Cheteshwar Pujara’s maiden Test hundred took India to a score 307 for 5 wickets at the stumps of day one offering rightful replacement at No.3. Pujara made 119 runs not out out of 226 balls hanging to one end while MS Dhoni is on the other end.
Losing openers after a okay start, India could have been in trouble but Pujara and Kohli played cautiously churning the runs. New Zealand, who opted to come in with three seamers and one spinner also performed well. In third session, Saurashtra lad Pujara was dropped on 60 in the bowling of Patel. Missing of super seniors VVS Laxman and Rahul Dravid in the team was well balanced by Chateshwar Pujara.
