Cheteshwar Pujara: Cheteshwar Pujara got a big responsibility. This time, the responsibility of England’s county team (English County) Sussex (Sussex) captain has been handed over to Pujara. As a result, a new feather has been added to the crown of this batter of Team India. But that can be said.
Cheteshwar Pujara Got A Big Responsibility
Cheteshwar Pujara is now a household name in England’s county cricket. He has done justice to his name by coming to the crease for Sussex in the current county cricket. Sussex captain Tom Haynes is injured. Pujara has been named captain in his place for the Middlesex v Sussex match on Tuesday (July 19).
Following the news of Tom Haines’ injury, Cheteshwar Pujara has been named as interim captain.
Good luck to @cheteshwar1 and the team. #GOSBTS

On Pujara’s captaincy, the team’s head coach Ian Salisbury said, “Pujara has been named captain in Tom’s absence. He is a natural leader for the team. Pujara is a very experienced and talented person. I know he will do well as captain.”
Sussex captain Tom Haynes suffered a hand injury while playing in the last match against Leicestershire. He will be out of action for at least five to six weeks. So Sussex handed over the responsibility to Cheteshwar Pujara. The Middlesex vs Sussex match will be played at Lord’s.
After being dropped from India’s Test team, Pujara went on to play for the county. He scored a total of 766 runs in six matches for Sussex. There are four hundreds of them. Maximum 203 runs. Batting average 109.42. Apart from being one of the reliable batsmen of the team, Pujara will also handle the responsibility of the captain this time.
The 34-year-old star has shown his mettle on English soil. After playing well for Sussex, he was picked in the Edgbaston Test squad against England. Despite scoring 13 runs in the first innings, he scored 66 runs in the second innings. However, England won the Test by seven wickets thanks to unbeaten centuries from Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow.
