Indian Test Team Batsmen Cheteshwar Pujara (Cheteshwar Pujara) After failing in international cricket in recent times, now Ranji Trophy 2022 is also disappointing. In the first innings of the first match of this Ranji season, Pujara was dismissed for 0, facing just 4 balls. For Pujara, worried about his place in the Indian team, this could deepen the crisis. Because Pujara’s form was expected to return in the Ranji Trophy, but after this innings, the hearts of his fans have been broken once again.
Cheteshwar Pujara got out for zero
Mumbai fast bowler Mohit Awasthi showed the way to the pavilion by LBW to Pujara in 4 balls. This 30-year-old bowler is playing the first match of his first-class career and in the first match itself, this player has wreaked havoc. Mohit Awasthi has taken 3 out of the top 5 wickets of Saurashtra. Along with this, after this performance of Cheteshwar Pujara, the way for him to make his place in Team India is becoming more difficult.
Along with the young players, many veterans of Team India are also playing in Ranji Trophy 2022. In which the names of Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara are included. The sword of being out of the Indian Test team is hanging over these two players. The performance of these players in Ranji Trophy 2022 can also decide the future of their international career.
Pujara-Rahane face to face
In the very first match of this Ranji season, these two players have had to take the field against each other. Ajinkya Rahane is part of the Mumbai team, while Cheteshwar Pujara is playing for the Saurashtra team. Batting first in this match, Mumbai declared their first innings by scoring 544 runs for 7 wickets. In which Ajinkya Rahane’s century was included. But Cheteshwar Pujara is dismissed for 0 in his first innings.
No runs scored on South Africa tour
There is a question mark about Cheteshwar Pujara’s inclusion in the Test team after India’s tour of South Africa. In 6 innings of 3 Test matches against South Africa, Pujara had scored only one half-century. Apart from this, Rahane also did not perform anything special on this tour. But Rahane has made his form felt by scoring a century in the first innings of Ranji Trophy 2022.
