Following his magnificent run with the bat, Indian no.3 Test batsman is full of lauds and wishes. Former Australian fast bowler Brett Lee has also joined the list with a special compliment for the Indian Test specialist.

“If I had to bowl to Pujara, I would have prayed! Seriously, he is so good and puts such a heavy price on his wicket. Pujara really is a freak of nature… Look at his statistics… Three hundreds. Our best? Harris’s 79 in the first innings at the SCG.”

Brett Lee quoted above one in Telegraph and also he admitted the fact that Cheteshwar Pujara was the major gap between both teams throughout the series.

Pujara finished the series with a staggering 521 runs with the help of three tons including an epic knock of 193 in the final Test. During the series Pujara became only the fifth Indian batsman to face more than 1000 balls in a Test series in Australia.

Pujara handled as many as 1258 balls while spending 1868 minutes in the middle. Not just that, he is now also only the third Indian after Kohli and Gavaskar to score three or more centuries in a Test series in Australia.
