Cheteshwar Pujara, the leading batsman of the Indian Test team, is all set to make his comeback in the Indian Premier League 2021. Pujara had not played in the IPL for a long time, but he has been won by MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings for this season. Pujara is also keen on his return to the IPL.
Significantly, Pujara played his last match in the IPL in 2014. He has been out of this league for the last seven years. However, this time Chennai has added to their team by showing confidence in them. Pujara also wants to live up to the dependence of Chennai Super Kings. For this, they are practicing vigorously.
Pujara, known for his slow batting in Test cricket, wants to bat in an explosive manner in IPL 2021. That is why he has changed his batting style. In his new style, he practiced on the nets and also rained sixes.
Actually, a fan has shared a video of Pujara’s practice on Twitter, in which he is seen hitting big hits. Pujara hit sixes long on Deepak Chahar, Karn Sharma, and Throw Down Expert.
Test specialist Cheteshwar Pujara returned to the Indian Premier League after 7 years when he was bought by Chennai Super Kings at a base price of Rs 50 lakh during the 2021 auction.
Pujara’s record in the IPL is not very good. Till now he has scored 390 runs in 30 matches with a strike rate of 99.74 and an average of 20.53. He has played for Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders.
