On an individual level, several players from both sides will be on the verge of achieving certain milestones in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
Vital cog of India’s middle-order, Cheteshwar Pujara has played 98 Test matches till date and he is all set to complete the achievement of 100 Test caps in the upcoming series. As the second game of the series will be played in Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi, Pujara might reach the milestone there. Former India captain and legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar talked about Pujara in an interaction with PTI.
“I feel Pujara’s achievements aren’t recognised enough and his importance in the team isn’t recognised enough, generally,” said Tendulkar.
“He has played magnificently for the country and his contribution has been immense in whatever success Indian cricket team has had,” added Tendulkar.
