India Test specialist Cheteshwar Pujara has scored a third double ton against Middlesex.
This allowed his team Sussex to reach a 500-mark score in the County Championship Division Two match.
Pujara has been in excellent form of late for Sussex and has scored double ton after double ton for the team due to which they have been able to win matches.
Pujara’s was the last wicket in the match and he ended by piling up 231 from 403 balls.
This is why Pujara was recalled to the Indian Test side after his performances for Sussex.
Additionally, Pujara also decided to lead the Sussex team after skipper Tom Haines sustained a broken hand while batting against Leicestershire last week.
Head Coach of Sussex, Ian Salisbury heaped praises upon Pujara for being such an excellent player and also taking initiative to captain the team on behalf of Haines.
He also added that the task to lead the team has sufficiently reduced the pressure on senior pacer Finn.
Pujara has been a run-getter in this season of the County Championship and has amassed more than 750 runs.
Salisbury also mentioned that Pujara has been a natural leader from the start for the team.
