Sachin Tendulkar believes that Cheteshwar Pujara’s batting style is integral to the success of the Indian team and criticizes those who have not achieved the same level of achievements for the country as him.
New Delhi: Former captain and one of the greatest batsmen in cricket history, Sachin Tendulkar believes that Cheteshwar Pujara’s batting style is an integral part of the Indian team’s success and is criticized by people who criticize him. Achievements have not been earned for the same country.
Questions are being raised on Pujara’s batting
Despite his strong efforts in Australia, Pujara has often been criticized for not showing the passion to keep the scoreboard moving. Tendulkar said that this view of Pujara is wrong. Along with this, he spoke on many issues ahead of India’s World Test Championship final against New Zealand from 18 June in Southampton.
Sachin defends Pujara
Tendulkar said, ‘I think we should appreciate what Cheteshwar Pujara has achieved for India. It’s not always about strike-rate. In Test cricket, you need different plans and different types of players to fit into your team.
Pujara an integral part of the team
Tendulkar said, ‘It’s like five fingers in your hands. Each finger has a different role and Pujara is an integral part of our team. I love what Pujara has done for India. Instead of judging his every innings, we should appreciate what he has done for India.
People’s attitude changed due to T20
The former legend, who scored hundreds of centuries in international cricket, said, ‘Those who question his technique and ability to score runs, I do not think they have played top-class cricket as much as Pujara.’ Tendulkar feels that T20 has changed the perception of people, where only one skill is appreciated and that is hitting the ball off the field.
