Wankhede ton better than double century: Pujara
Cheteshwar Pujara, who is on a roll in this series with a double ton and another century on Saturday, rated his 135-run knock at the Wankhede Stadium higher than his unbeaten 206 against England in the first Test at Motera last week.
Unbeaten on 114 on Day One, Pujara looked poised for yet another big score, but he was done in by Graeme Swann’s flighted delivery and Matt Prior made no mistake in stumping him. Finally, England found a way to dismiss Pujara, who went unbeaten for 16 hours and 55 minutes in the series.
“I think this (knock) was better than the Ahmedabad innings. This innings was more satisfying than the double hundred because we were in trouble and the team needed bit of score on the board and I thought even the wicket was difficult to bat on. So, yeah it was satisfying to score a hundred on a difficult wicket,” he said.
