Hard-nosed and industrious Unfussy and unassuming (Source: File) Top News While returning from the West Indies a fortnight ago Cheteshwar Pujara was quizzed by an immigration officer in London “What do you do” he asked Pat came the reply: “I play cricket” The officer probed him further “Are you a professional cricketer” Pujara with a wistful smile replied “Yeah I do I am returning from the West Indies” The spectacled officer a little bemused asked him “Do you play with Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma” Pujara approvingly nodded his head palpably a little embarrassed The officer stared back at him as though he wasn’t fully convinced In a day and age when Indian cricketers especially their batsmen are known for their belligerent stroke-play and innate fashion sense Pujara surprisingly looks largely understated He is not known for those imperious pull shots or those outrageous ramps over the wicket-keeper’s head Neither is he a hot property in the endorsement circuit Pujara is however your orthodox Test cricketer Cricket’s version of a boy next door Hard-nosed and industrious Unfussy and unassuming Every time he has his backs to the wall he makes it a point to fight back fully demonstrating his skill and dexterity The classic case was during India’s third and final Test against Sri Lanka at the SSC in Colombo last year Ahead of that game Sunil Gavaskar had warned that Pujara would need to score a big hundred at least a 150 if he wanted to retain his place in the Indian Test team On the face of it Gavaskar’s comments were not off the mark Pujara was making a comeback after an eight-month hiatus In the interim KL Rahul had already staked his claim while Kohli seemed to have an unmitigated trust on Rohit Pujara returned to the eleven only because both first choice openers Murali Vijay and Shikhar Dhawan were injured Timely ton But Pujara made full use of the rare chance in the series decider On a spicy SSC track which offered ample assistance to the Sri Lankan swing bowlers the 27-year-old played the pivotal role carrying his bat through the innings for his seventh Test hundred (145) Barring his century none of the other Indian batsmen managed to get a measure of the track The fact that Amit Mishra’s 59 was the second highest scorer in that innings perfectly illustrated how valuable and timely Pujara’s knock was India would eventually go on to win that match and series and Pujara walked away with the Man-of-the-Match award The ton against the Lankans helped Pujara retain his spot for the Test series against the Proteas at home at the end of 2015 and for the recently concluded West Indies tour However in these six Tests since that century Pujara has managed to accrue only 264 runs at an average of 33 And in this period he has managed to register only a single half century Clearly a poor conversion rate was ailing the Saurashtra lad He has a plausible explanation though “Even though I have not scored big runs in the last few matches they have been stellar contributions in low-scoring games” he noted Another worrying factor for Pujara was his inability to keep the scoreboard moving To put things in perspective he had consumed 649 deliveries to score these 264 runs A strike-rate which works out to be 4067 In the first Test against West Indies in Antigua he had settled pretty appreciably before top-edging leg-spinner Bishoo to hand Braithwaithe a simple catch Pujara had scored 16 but had consumed 67 deliveries Technically there wasn’t much of an issue in his batting But it was his inability to break the shackles that was hurting his chances The fallout of Pujara’s rather tepid sequence of scores and his below par strike-rate was that he was dropped for the third Test in St Lucia Suddenly his match-winning exploits in Colombo barely 12 months ago seemed to be a thing of the distant past At a time when strokemakers with the propensity to alter a game in a single session were fast gaining currency Pujara looked like a chip off the old block Former India director Ravi Shastri had made it clear during his 18-month tenure that he wanted batsmen who could help the team score in excess of 300 on Day 1 of a Test match Kohli too seemed to be endorsing the same template It therefore did not come as a surprise to see India’s Test captain preferring the likes of Rohit or a Rahul to Pujara Surely being in and out of a team can be unsettling for any player and Pujara was no exception He will know these are some of the perils of featuring in a single format Where your failure gets magnified and success conveniently forgotten Apart from his own personal form there are some permutations and combinations over which he has no control of For starters if Kohli continues with his tried and tested formula of playing five bowlers on the dust bowls in India Pujara could well be staring at the ignominy of being the 12th man in this team Nevertheless with a long and a gruelling season ahead in which India are scheduled to play 13 Tests at home Pujara knows that he somehow needs to find his verve and insatiable appetite for big runs He will get his chance in an important Duleep Trophy encounter on Sunday where he will be playing for Gautam Gambhir’s India Blue The pink ball and the flood lights have already added intrigue to the two games played here at the Greater Noida Stadium But ahead of Sunday’s encounter against India Green a virtual knockout the Blues batting will get bolstered having a traditional player like Pujara in their mix For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App

skill set which all other European and Asian counterparts are envious of–the physical strength One of the reasons why African sidesarguably have an upper hand in the world of sports is because they possess so much threat both at junior and senior levels Ibrahim Boubacar of Niger comptes for the arial ball with John Otu of Ghana Getty Images The FIFA U-17 World Cup in India is no different The young athletes have shown a lot of promise since the start of the tournament More so at the all-African Round of 16 clash between two-time champions Ghana and debutants Niger there were glimpses of both sides’ physical style of play everyone talked about before the match Often there are games where the fans discussthe could-haves and should-haves whileheading out of the stadium but this particular clash was a case of just pushing and shoving Soon after the referee blew his whistle Ghana launched aflatlong ball towards right-winger Ibrahim Sulley Then in the next minute captain Eric Aiyah’s Andres Iniesta-like incredible run from the middle had brought fans to the edge of their seats but the 5’7 attacker was floored by Niger’s Farouk Idrissa The movement in the middle was bland almost invisible at the 20th-minute mark What had happened before that and what was to come nextwas a test of physical strength Ghana who lookedless bulky in front of their bulkier Niger counterparts drilled the ball twice into the net to enter the quarter-finals This was not the first time these two teams were involved in a physical duel Not too long ago in the much-talked-about semi-final of U-17 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Gabon both Ghana and Niger plunged into the opposition till the very last kick of the game Eventually the Black Starlets came out victorious on penalties “During the AFCON we were not physically prepared and that’s why struggled for 90 minutes After the tournament we had the opportunity to work on our physical strength which I think made the difference tonight” Ghana coach Samuel Fabian told Firstpost with a broad smile on his face before adding” We started the training sessions on 18 July because most of the players go to school regularly and we had to wait for the academic year to end” By the time the clock reached the half-hour mark Fabian’s young guns had a total of six attempts in comparison to Niger’s one The Menas had committed seven fouls while Ghana registered six which says a lot about the rough and tough nature of the match in Navi Mumbai However Ghana displayed a hint of their tactical astuteness with their frenetic speed and deft touch in intervals And in no time the Black Starlets started to exploit gaps amidst tackles flying from left right and center from the opposition It looked like anyone’s game before Ayiah who made yet another mazy run this time from the right was brought down inside the box by Idrissa at the stroke of half-time The Accra-born attacker took the responsibility from the spot and slotted home calmly to shrug some pressure off Ghana’s shoulder "The penalty came at a very crucial time and it pushed our confidence for the second half We created a lot of chances but at the tournament like this only goals matter" said Fabian The half-time team talk might have changed a bit as Ghana had one foot in the next round but the second half was nothing short of a slugfest After dominating the first half creating 13 attempts to Niger’s lone effort the fans expected the latter to bounce back butthe IsmaliaTiemoko-led side wasoutmanoeuvred Chances arrived for Ghana but the second goal didn’t Gideon Mensah missed from close range and Ayiah could have had a second penalty goal after Idrissa fouled Emmanuel Toku The game remained 1-0 in favour of the Ghanaians as most of the Indian faces were seen cheering for Ghana But Fabian knew something was coming as the Niger defence started to crumble under pressure Substitute Richard Danso belted one from nearly 25 yards to double Ghana’s lead and send the West African side into the last eight not before a little dance move with his teammates “Niger did well but they lacked concentration at the end They were a bit scared in the final minutes Thankfully we managed to bag the second” explained Fabian The Black Starlets had a total of seven shots on target out of 23 attempts while Niger did not trouble the Ghanaian keeper Not even once It appeared as if Niger were aiming to turn the tables this time around via penalties They did not seem like a team with a plan not until the first-half They invited the pressure and soon paid the price for the same The Ghanaians who were the rightful winners of Group A might have felt the heat in the early stages of the game but prevailed at the right time to set up yet another mouthwatering
