You know what, I am real bad loser: Cheteshwar Pujara

New Delhi: Indian cricketer Cheteshwar Pujara, who is known as one of the most technically sound batsmen in the current Test team, feels that he is a real bad loser.

During an interview with The Indian Express Pujara stated: “You know what, I am real bad loser. I don’t show it but it really hurts when I don’t contribute to the success of the team.” - as a way of explanation of his turnaround.

The 27-year-old, who became the 4th Indian opener to carry his bat through the innings during the recently concluded three-match Test series in Sri Lanka, also told the newspaper that: “The moment the series (in SL) started, I told myself that I had to improve as a player. I also told myself that I had to be ready whenever I get a chance.

“So every single day I was making sure that I sleep on time, wake up on time. I followed a schedule and kept the negative thoughts away. Even if I was only doing drinks duty or fielding, I was preparing as if I was playing.”

For his unbeaten 145-run innings in the 3rd Test and final Test, the right-hander was rewarded with Man of the Match award.
