My goal is to help India win a World Team Cup: Teshwar Pujara

Cheteshwar Pujara, a seasoned Indian batter, will reach a significant milestone after taking part in the second Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in Delhi. His 100th Test match for India will take place in the Second Test, which begins on Friday, February 17.

The right-handed batter has been a standout for the Indians for 13 years. It will be the first Test to be held in Delhi since December 2017 when the second Test is played at the Arun Jaitley Stadium.

Pujara claimed he never imagined playing 100 Test matches before the second Test against Australia. He added that he never tries to anticipate too far ahead and always tries to focus about being in the moment. The 35-year-old cricketer had experienced numerous ups and downs since he made his Test debut in 2010. Notably, he struggled in Nagpur during the first game of the series.
“I never considered playing one hundred Test matches when I first started playing cricket and later made my (Test) debut. Being in the now and not planning too far ahead is what it’s all about for me. So, before this series began, I gave it some thought, and that’s when I discovered I would be taking part in my 100th Test match. You will always experience ups and downs in your career, and you must persevere through them “According to NDTV, Pujara remarked during the pre-game news conference on Thursday.

Winning the second Test will also put India one step closer to earning a spot in the June World Test Championship (WTC) final. They would attempt to win the upcoming games in order to go to the WTC final, according to Pujara. He continued by saying that he had always wanted to help India win a WTC final.

“There is still much to accomplish. I am quite happy with myself and eager to play in this 100th Test match. Yet, we are also taking part in a significant series. So maybe we can win this Test match and then go on to win another Test match, ensuring our qualification for the WTC championship game. My goal is to help the Indian team win a WTC final after they were unsuccessful in the last one. So maybe after we qualify, we’ll move in that direction “said he.
India will face Australia in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy with an unassailable 1-0 advantage. They will make every effort to maintain their position of dominance from the first test. Pujara played in his 100th Test, becoming just the 13th Indian player to reach the milestone. Sachin Tendulkar has participated in the most Test matches overall (200 matches).
