Pujara’s slowest half-century

New Delhi, 9 January (IANS). Cheteshwar Pujara hit his slowest half-century at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Saturday.

Pujara completed 50 runs off 174 balls during India’s first innings on the third day of the third Test match at the SCG.

India’s Test number-3, however, was caught by Tim Paine on the back of the wicket off Pat Cummins after facing 176 balls.

Pujara hit five fours in his innings.

Prior to this match, Pujara had his slowest half-century in 2018 against South Africa in Johannesburg.

Pujara had scored 50 runs in that match, facing 173 balls. He was also dismissed for the same score, facing 179 balls.

The funny thing is that in both innings, Pujara was caught at 50 and caught by the wicketkeeper.
