Has Chetheshwar redeemed himself

Recommended Posts

Today Pujara showed why he has always been a better player than phoney Rahane. Even in his waning days as a top class batsman he carries his form & gets runs consistently when he gets his touch back. Now, this is his 3rd good score in consecutive tests. Unlike that phoney who can score triple hundred in a game & the play like a novice next game

when did rahane score a 300? he can't even score a 200 in tests, let alone 300. he is a tailender. the batting lineup in this test should be: pant (6), thakur (7), umesh (8), rahane (9), bumrah (10), siraj (11).

Good stuff. Unlucky with the ankle roll. He is out for the next game. Dude is a warrior though. Respect for playing with a nasty injury.

 

Anyway he needs a rest anyway. 

 

Maybe we should use oldies for 2 games or 3 per series. Young ins should get a couple of games. 

 

Batsmen need rest too, you know. They field run and run between wickets.

Rahane doesn't need rest. He fields in slips, he doesn't really bat for very long and therefore doesn't run between wkts all that much. Therefore, he can play all tests in a series. and he can do so until he is 40. looking forward to another Decade of the Midget.

Redemption happens when india wins not when he makes pointless scores … 

Pujara already helped India win 2nd test. Whenever he scores India more or less wins, as seen in last two Aus tour as well. Can't say the same about Kohli though, as have rarely seen India win in SENA when Kohli scores.

In fact, I mostly seem to remember the converse. When Rat scored a ton of runs in 2018 in Eng, we lost in most of the tests. ditto for his twin tons at adelaide. and even perth in 2018 when we lost. Kohli may very well be the best player in losses.

 

I'm sure that people will say that one batsman cannot make a team win. while that is obviously true (with exceptions like lara's 153*), I find it rather odd that most of Kohli's big knocks came in defeats and not in wins or heroic draws.

Not sure of redemption but nice to see him play positively. He has range of shots in the square of the wicket. He should play those drives & shots instead of straight bat blocking all the time.

This is all by we wanted from him. 

Yes played like prime puji. This puji is elite. Not the one we saw in test 3 first or first test. 

 

However he is done now. Will be out of the series. Ankle roll looked nasty. Bad luck for puji. He was doing so well. Even the wicket happened because he was compromised.

Today was a good innings and the runs are useful. Last game 91 just made sure he plays on. 

 

As no.3 I would however want him to score on the opening day when we are put into bat and help avoid the collapse. Because collapsing the first day usually means the test is almost gone more often than not. Like last test, we were so behind that we could not come back. We were fortunate with a very good opening partnership that got us close to parity. Pujara partnership with Rohit gave us a good lead on which rest of the batsman can build.

 

 

Overall, I wont go as far as redeemed himself yet but he has a more respectable series now than a disastrous one.
