Scoring plenty of runs in domestic circuit has helped: Cheteshwar Pujara
India’s top-order batsman in Test cricket Cheteshwar Pujara scored his second double hundred in Test cricket and the youngster credits his domestic exploits for his top-notch performance. He says that scoring plenty of runs in domestic circuit has helped him build a temperament that is necessary to play big and long innings in international cricket.

“I’ve scored a lot of runs in domestic and that has helped me get the temperament right. It was a very important partnership with Vijay. That was the most important phase of our innings - we communicated well and the partnership set up the game for the team,” Pujara said during the presentation ceremony.

The Rajiv Gandhi Cricket Stadium of Hyderabad has been a happy hunting ground for the Saurashtra lad as he scored a century against New Zealand here in 2012 and now has scored a double-ton against Australia.

Pujara’s superlative knock earned him player-of-the-match award in the second Test despite his knee problems and the youngster also admitted that he was under pressure to perform.

“I’m really happy. There was a bit of pressure as I just got married and my wife was worried that I have to perform,” said Cheteshwar Pujara.

The man from Saurashtra could not convert his start into a big score in the first Test but on this occasion he cracked a calm and composed double-ton which helped India thump Australia by an innings and 135 runs. This win means India takes an unbeatable 2-0 lead in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
