How Cheteshwar Pujara's 256-run knock brought out the best in Virender Sehwag again
Taking to social micro-blogging site Twitter, Viru praised the 28-year-old is his remarkably unique style.
New Delhi: With a tough home season coming up, Cheteshwar Pujara has hit form at the right time as far as the Indian team is concerned.
After scoring 166 against against India Green, the stylish right-hander flayed the India Red attack with a 256-run knock.
The Saurashtra batsman is a key component of India's Test side and as such his form is crucial to BCCI's plans of claiming the number one slot in the longest format.
Like most Indian fans, Virender Sehwag too was elated with Pujara's show in the ongoing Duleep Trophy.
Taking to social micro-blogging site Twitter, Viru praised the 28-year-old in his remarkably unique style.

Whenever there has been a blip in Pujara's form, skipper Virat Kohli and the team management have thrown their weight behind him.
However, his performance in the upcoming series against New Zealand will be keenly tracked.
