Cheteshwar Pujara continues good run in Ranji Trophy 2024, scores valiant 49 against Haryana

Cheteshwar Pujara fell short of a fifty by just one run against Haryana in a Ranji Trophy match on Friday.

After scoring a double century in his previous Ranji Trophy outing, Cheteshwar Pujara missed out on a well-deserved fifty vs Haryana on Friday (January 12). The right-handed batter got out on 49 runs as Saurashtra was bundled out for just 145 runs in their first innings. During his innings, Cheteshwar Pujara stroked 8 fours as he faced a total of 100 balls during his innings.

Cheteshwar Pujara was not a part of the recently concluded India vs South Africa Test series. The veteran batter for long has been a solid player for India in Tests. However, his omission from the South Africa Tour made many wonder whether it was the end of the road for the veteran in India colours. The right-handed batter has put up some solid performances in the ongoing Ranji Trophy and has also put his name forward for the upcoming IND vs ENG Test series.

Cheteshwar Pujara has so far played 103 Tests and scored 7195 runs at an average of 43.60. He last played a Test in June against Australia.  The 36-year-old has also played several County Championship matches for Sussex in the past two years.
