Cheteshwar Pujara Double Hundred: Cheteshwar Pujara, who was out of the Test series against South Africa, has once again knocked on the doors of Team India. He has scored a wonderful double century in Ranji Trophy. The special thing is that his big innings has come at a time when the Indian selectors have to announce Team India for the Test series against England.
Probably the Indian team for the Test series against England can be announced by today (January 7) evening. Just before this, Cheteshwar Pujara’s double century in Ranji must have put the selectors in a dilemma.
Pujara is currently moving towards a triple century in this match being played on the ground of Saurashtra Cricket Association in Rajkot. In this match against Jharkhand, Saurashtra captain Jaydev Unadkat won the toss and chose to bowl first. On the very first day, Saurashtra bowlers bowled out Jharkhand for 142 runs. After this, Saurashtra batted strongly from the beginning. Harvik Desai (85), Sheldon Jackson (54) and Arpit Vasavada (68) scored half-centuries. Prerak Mankad is close to his century here.

There was a partnership of more than 2.25 runs for the fifth wicket between Prerak Mankad and Cheteshwar Pujara. Thanks to this partnership, Saurashtra’s lead on the basis of first innings has also increased to more than 400 runs. Saurashtra captain Jaydev Unadkat can declare his innings here in the second session. It will be interesting to see whether Pujara scores a triple century in this match or not.
