Cheteshwar Pujara continues his purple patch in County Cricket

At the County Ground in Bristol on Saturday, Sussex’s Cheteshwar Pujara scored his second century in three games against Gloucestershire in the second-tier County Championship.

On Day 3 of the match, when Sussex was given the opportunity to bat, Pujara reached his century off 191 balls. Pujara scored 115 against Durham earlier this month at Hove, where he made his full-time leadership debut for Sussex.

Pujara and Tom Alsop worked together to add 100 runs for the third wicket after Sussex lost two wickets with the score at 58. The 35-year-old would resume his innings on day three with 99 runs, surpassing the triple-digit threshold with a single.

Wasim Jaffer’s total of 57 First-Class centuries was also eclipsed by Pujara, who now ranks fourth among Indians in terms of FC centuries. Pujara is ranked lower on the list than Sachin Tendulkar (81), Sunil Gavaskar (81), Rahul Dravid (68), and Vijay Hazare (60).

The India international, who earlier this year competed in his 100th Test match against Australia for Sussex in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, had a 100-run start to the season and credited the club with helping him regain his place in the national team from the previous year.

“I was out of the Indian team. I needed some runs to get back in. I got the right platform. There’s nothing like playing for the Indian team. Sussex has given me that opportunity. I’ll never forget that,” Pujara said.
