Cheteshwar Pujara Hits 174 in the Royal London One-Day Cup on Only 131 Balls

During his innings against Surrey, which consisted of 131 balls, Cheteshwar Pujara scored 174 runs by hitting 20 fours, five sixes, and five boundaries.

At the current Royal London One-Day Cup, Cheteshwar Pujara is playing some of his best cricket. A few days after hitting 107 runs off 79 balls for Sussex against Warwickshire, the right-handed batter backed it up with yet another century, this time scoring 174 runs off 131 balls. He did this a few days after scoring 107 runs off 79 balls for Sussex against Warwickshire. On Sunday, Pujara scored an inning while playing against Surrey. When the player walked out to bat, his club Sussex was in a precarious position, with 3.2 overs remaining and a score of 9 for 2. After putting on a partnership with Tom Clark for the third wicket that yielded 205 runs, Pujara went on to capitalise on the foundation that had been established.

While Clark was knocked out on 104, Pujara kept one end of the game under control. In the end, it took him 103 balls to get to his century. In the immediate aftermath of scoring a century, the Indian player shifted gears and began striking the ball at a better strike rate. The next 28 balls were followed by unmitigated carnage from Pujara, as he scored 74 runs in the space of just just 28 balls. The 48th over was the point at which his innings came to an end, but not before he had struck a total of 20 fours and 5 sixes.

Due in large part to Pujara’s knock, Sussex was able to post a total of 378/6 in the allotted 50 overs. In the meantime, Conor McKerr collected two wickets for Surrey, while Tom Lawes, Matt Dunn, Amar Virdi, and Yousef Majid each took one wicket.

In return, Aristides Karvelas took four wickets (for 35 runs) and Delray Rawlins took three wickets (for 25 runs), which contributed to Sussex’s victory in the game by a significant margin of 216 runs. Both Ryan Patel (65 off 56) and Tom Lawes (57 not out) displayed some fight, but Surrey was unable to win the game despite their efforts.
