Patiently Waiting: Cheteshwar Pujara’s Journey as a Single-Format Player is Praise Worthy

The lone single-format batter Cheteshwar Pujara for India may retire into the solitude of batting, which is what he does best. He plays single format but plays best than rest and makes him legend of the current era.

Cheteshwar Pujara Don’t Mind to Wait

The wait for Cheteshwar Pujara has been long. He doesn’t mind, though. The 35-year-old has only played nine Tests since the year 2022 began: two in January 2022, one in July 2022, two in December 2022, two in February 2023, two in March 2023, and the last World Test Championship match against Australia at The Oval in London in June 2023, which will be his tenth. These pauses in play, if they can be called that, are challenging because they require the batters to tap into a different reservoir of concentration. This focus must be one that keeps them in the present and requires them to continue honing their skills for months on end. In this reservoir, he will look forward to every game more than almost every other player on the Indian team. A player who only plays one format has been fortunate enough to experience this in the modern era.

Rahul Dravid is Impressed by Pujara Despite Being One Format Player

Being a one-format player is difficult, and I found it out towards the end of my career as well, Dravid said on Monday. “Because occasionally there aren’t many matches for you to play. But Pujara’s ability to play cricket is his best quality. One of the things that particularly caught my attention was how he always finds time to play Ranji Trophy cricket, even during our season. “He has taken on the challenge of coming to County cricket, as well as taken on a leadership role at Sussex,” Dravid continued. He understands that he must continue playing cricket because otherwise, the gaps could be really large. So he has played a lot of cricket, whether or not he was in the IPL.

Cheteswar Pujara is a key Player to win the Final of WTC and he is the current legend of test. He only plays test and is best in it. Everyone is hoping big and solid innings by him in the Final.
