Indian pacer Deepak Chahar shared a first-hand account of reliable batsman Cheteshwar Pujara's strong defensive technique but in another sport. Pujara, who is usually the rock, solid and dependable in Test match cricket against the red ball, continued to impress with his defensive shots in the sport of table tennis. Such was Pujara's accuracy that Chahar, his opponent on the other side of the table, couldn't even get a point even while playing with a cricket bat instead of a table tennis racket.
"Bhaiya yaha bhe defence kuch jayda he strong hai," Chahar captioned the video he posted on social media. "Couldn't get a single point with bat also," he added.
