Cheteshwar Pujara's hundred propped up India on a day when the other batsmen faltered. His fight earned high praise on social media.
It was a gritty innings from @cheteshwar1 under the circumstances. Congratulations to you on your brilliant century. Looking forward to many more knocks like this in the series. #AUSvIND #FightOfMight pic.twitter.com/MwhPN8BGW3— Sachin Tendulkar (@sachin_rt) December 6, 2018
Wonder if Pujara can take little pieces out of his ample grit and patience and distribute to some of his batting colleagues.#INDvAUS— Sanjay Manjrekar (@sanjaymanjrekar) December 6, 2018
Sterling century by @cheteshwar1, among the best he's played as also among the best by an Indian batsman in Australia. Heavy duty concentration, application and commitment in stark contrast to the airy-fairy profligacy of the others. Kudos! #PujaraCentury #IndiavsAus— Cricketwallah (@cricketwallah) December 6, 2018
Australia's day. Bowlers were good in hot conditions. But that was a serious test match knock from pujara. Patience,application,discipline and mental toughness. Soaked up the pressure early and cash in at the end of the day. Good test match cricket.— John Hastings (@johnhastings194) December 6, 2018
