India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test: Cheteshwar Pujara set to go past Don Bradman | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: India’s Experimental Polish Icon Cheteshwar Pujara played a great role in the opening Test match against Bangladesh which India won by a huge margin of 188 runs.
Pujara missed a century in the first inning and departed in the 90th minute but the star smasher soon let go of that disappointment and hit the triple-digit mark in the second inning. The right-hander made his mark in his 19th Test century, scoring 102 out of 130 balls with a strike rate of 78.46. This is his fastest century in the Tests.
With 19 centuries, Pujara has joined greats like Ross Taylor (New Zealand), Gordon Greenidge (West Indies), Clive Lloyd (West Indies) and Mike Hussey (Australia).
With India, who are leading 1 in a two game series, are expected to face Bangladesh in the Second Test from Thursday (December 22), Pujara will have a chance to overtake the batting legend of Australia Donald Bradman.
Pujara, who had 6984 runs on the Test, needed just 12 runs to beat Bradman’s total of 6996 runs. Bradman played 52 Tests and scored 6996 Tests with an average score of 99.94.
Pujara, who launched the Test in 2010 with Australia in Bengaluru, has appeared in 97 Tests so far and scored 6984 runs with an average of 44.76. Cricket athlete Saurashtra is India’s eighth highest run runner in the Tests.
