The 2022 edition of the Indian Premier League is currently underway where the star cricketers of world cricket will compete against each other in a 10-team tournament. Cheteshwar Pujara, who was part of the Chennai Super Kings squad that won IPL 2021 in the UAE last year, went unsold at the IPL 2022 Mega Auction.
The right-handed batter also struggled with his form in Test cricket, losing his spot as the Indian cricket team’s number three Test batter. So Cheteshwar Pujara decided to work on his game and struck a deal with Sussex in county cricket. He has scored a huge number of points this year in English conditions.
Looking at his numbers so far in the new county season, Pujara has scored a double hundred against Derbyshire. He didn’t stop at 201 in those innings. Shortly after, he registered a century against Worcestershire, where he scored 109 points. In the ongoing battle between Sussex and Durham, he has already scored 100 points and is not out yet.
Former Indian cricketer Saba Karim had accurately said that if an international cricketer decides to play domestic cricket, he should be able to dominate there.
“If you’ve played international cricket and you come back to domestic cricket, I think you have to be able to dominate the competition. You have to show that you benefit from playing at an international level,” Karim said in the podcast Khelneeti.
Fans on Twitter react as Cheteshwar Pujara roars back to form in county cricket
Cheteshwar Pujara is back in shape with some big blows in county cricket. Indian cricket fans on Twitter were delighted to see the veteran batter send a reminder to the selectors ahead of the England tour scheduled for later this year. Here are some of the best Twitter reactions:

Another ton for Pujara. Was at 15(45) and accelerated to 106(166).
This comes after a 200 and a 100 in the previous matches.
