Team India registered an incredible 113-run win over South Africa on Thursday to go 1-0 up in the ongoing three-match series. The win meant that Virat Kohli’s side became the first-ever Asian team to win a Test in Centurion, breaching the fortress. And just in case if this stat is not enough to make you realize how big the occasion is, Cheteshwar Pujara just proved how much it meant to the players.
Pujara is a person who is known to be silent and quiet whatever the situation is. No matter if he has scored a century or gotten out on duck, the 33-year-old has a similar reaction as he very rarely expresses his feelings in public. However, the victory in Centurion was so huge that even someone like Pujara could not control his excitement after the end of the match!
Pujara celebrates the victory in style
On reaching the team hotel, India’s No. 3 was captured showing his dance moves for the first time ever. While his teammates and support staff were surprised and delighted at the same time to see the rare event unfolding in front of their eyes, Pujara did a bit of Bhangra alongside Ravichandran Ashwin and Mohammed Siraj.
The Indian off-spinner shared the amazing video on his Instagram and expressed his delight at India’s win and Pujara’s dance. In the caption, he stated, “The customary post-match pictures got too boring, hence @cheteshwar_pujara decided to make it memorable by shaking a leg for the first time ever with @mohammedsirajofficial and yours truly. What a win 🤩🤩”

The sight of Pujara dancing and celebrating after the match proves how an incredible team-man he is, considering the batsman had a tough outing on an individual level. The right-handed batsman registered scores of 0 and 16 in Centurion and as one of the most experienced players in the side, he would be hoping to come back strongly in the next match in Johannesburg.
