Ind VS Eng live: Pujara’s mire in 2021
The start of the 2021 cricketing calendar didn’t go well for the senior player. In the 8 matches he played for India in whites, he made 13 outings with the bat and mustered 368 runs. His poor average- 28.30 continues to be a matter of concern in his ongoing batting form.
The senior batsman’s batting woes continue to haunt him on England soil. In a total of 21 innings played on English turf, Pujara has aggregated just 527 runs. His average of 26.35 is one of his lowest compared to what compared to his performance in Australia.
