One of the players is definitely Cheteshwar Pujara. The Test batter failed to score big in the first Test as he was caught and bowled at the score of 7. He failed to make it big in the second Test too, which was his 100th Test and was ducked in the first innings followed by contributing only 31 runs in the Indian second innings.

After the dismal outing so far in the series by the current wall of Indian Test cricket, the 35-year-old was seen practicing various shots ahead of the third Test. Pujara shared the video from the session captioning it, “Prepping for the third.”

In the second Test, Pujara became the thirteenth Indian batter to play 100 Tests. He joined the elite list of Indian batters to have achieved this feat which includes Sunil Gavaskar, Dilip Vengsarkar, Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Sourav Ganguly, VVS Laxman, Virender Sehwag and Virat Kohli.
