Gutsy Pujara defies rampaging Sri Lanka in Kolkata Test

Cheteshwar Pujara showed a lot of character

Cheteshwar Pujara batted through another rain-affected, hard session to remain unbeaten on 47 and guide India to 74-5 at lunch on day two of the series-opening test against Sri Lanka. "You have got to still go out there and do the job". That innings shows his experience of playing county cricket (for Nottinghamshire).

"He is obviously a world class player". As for the rest, Sridhar said that Kohli would only take it when his body needs some.

However, unlike the narrative in recent months, it was Sri Lanka's turn to dominate as they grabbed three early Indian wickets after putting the hosts in to bat.

When asked if the Sri Lankans felt a little let down seeing the Indian side opting for a green trackin a bid to prepare for the South African tour, Nic Pothas conceded that the home side has the right to pick the kind of track they want to play at.

He then reloaded the gun before putting it back in his holster. " Somebody else walked up and said, 'Can I see it?' " Parks said. The man then pulled the trigger while the gun was lying on its side on a table and it went off, according to the News Sentinel .

India's fielding coach Ramakrishnan Sridhar believes the Indian seamers will also relish bowling in these conditions. "We are happy that our closest neighbours, who share more or less the same journey of independence are joining us in this celebration, which we believe will be a milestone and an augur of the great things to come in the annals of cricket". We can't control the conditions. So we work hard on the things we can control and I may sound like a broken record here but the only way to get better is to practice a lot and that's what this team does. "It's very very challenging batting conditions but you have to get out there and do your job", said Pothas.

No further play was possible, so only 32.5 overs have been bowled in the opening two days of the three-match series. The right-hand bowler then continued his economical bowling on the second day as well.

"He's a very very intelligent bowler". He is very astute and knows when he is prepared. "But you have to continue improving in global cricket as others are improving as well". "In places where there is good carry and bounce, you know where to stand".
