Cheteshwar Pujara's wife, Puja's joy was doubled when she was made aware of captain MS Dhoni's wife Sakshi's tweet just after Pujara reached the 200-run mark yesterday

 “Double Delight for Pujara...whhh...ooo...,” Sakshi had tweeted.

“I didn’t know… I am thrilled and excited with her message,” Puja said from Hyderabad.

What was Puja’s message to her husband as he left for the ground to resume his innings yesterday? “I only wished him for the day. There was no mention of 200 runs. ‘Chintu’ (Pujara’s nickname) knows his job well. But now, I can’t wait to congratulate him,” Puja said last evening.

Puja doesn’t read too much into talk that their marriage has brought the batsman luck. Neither did she rate his two double tons (the first came against England at Ahmedabad last year). “It is HIS hard work and sheer dedication that helped him score those runs,” she remarked.
