Summary

  • Former captain Sunil Gavaskar heaped praise on Cheteshwar Pujara but also slammed the rest of the Indian batsmen after their poor show with the bat on day 1 of the first Test against Australia on Thursday.
  • Pujara’s hundred has now added some strength to the Indian total and given the bowlers some sort of a chance to stage a comeback in the match, according to Gavaskar.
  • Gavaskar also added that it was one of the best hundreds scored by a batsman on Australian soil considering the situation that Pujara was in throughout the day.
  • Gavaskar pointed out that the Indian top-order batsmen, including captain Virat Kohli, perished cheaply after trying to do “flashy stuff”.
  • “For the last one year we have been talking about it, but hopefully for the next tours, to these countries in particular – South Africa, England and Australia – everything will be forgotten and we will talk in terms of having more matches for them and therefore, giving them the best-possible chance to acclimatise to the pitches and conditions and win for India,” Gavaskar felt.
