Watch: Pujara Receives ‘Guard Of Honour’ From India And Australia On His 100th Test

Highlights:

  • Indian and Australian players give Cheteshwar Pujara a guard of honour as he played in his 100th Test match in Delhi.
  • Pujara’s impressive Test career has included 7021 runs in 169 innings with 19 centuries and 34 half-centuries.
  • India leads the Border-Gavaskar Trophy series 1-0 after a convincing win over Australia in the opening match, with Pujara expected to play a key role.

The members of Team India, as well as the Australian batsmen David Warner and Usman Khawaja, presented Cheteshwar Pujara with a guard of honour as he played in his 100th Test on Friday. Before the match started, Pujara received a special cap from Indian batting legend Sunil Gavaskar, who also paid a heartfelt tribute to Pujara’s Test career so far.

Team India members lined up to form a guard of honour for Pujara as he entered the field for the second Test in Delhi. David Warner and Usman Khawaja also joined the Indian team members.

Here is a video of Warner and Khawaja participating in the guard of honour for the Indian batter:

Throughout his illustrious Test career, Pujara has amassed a total of 7021 runs in 169 innings, boasting an impressive batting average of 44.16, with 19 centuries and 34 half-centuries to his name. In February 2022, Pujara was left out of the Test team for the series against Sri Lanka, but he managed to reclaim his spot through his exceptional performances for Surrey in the County Championships.

Pujara is likely to play a key role in the current Border-Gavaskar Trophy as India will expect him to replicate his performances from the 2019–20 edition, when the team overcame Australia 2-1 Down Under.

Pat Cummins, the captain of Australia, won the toss earlier in the second Test and decided to bat. Warner and Khawaja batted first for the team, and Warner had some relief early on when he was successful in appealing an LBW ruling.

India has a 1-0 series lead after defeating Australia by an astounding innings and 132 runs in Nagpur’s opening match. The series consists of four matches. A fit-again Shreyas Iyer has replaced Suryakumar Yadav in the batting order in Team India’s XI for the opening Test.
