India are having a dream Test series in Australia and are almost inching to a memorable series win there. For the India’s greatest achievement in Australian soil, Cheteshwar Pujara has played a big role in the batting line up.

Cheteshwar Pujara is the leading run scorer of the series and there is no doubt that he will finish the series at the top position. In the ongoing Test in Sydney, Pujara played a life time knock of 193 in the Indian first innings.

However, on the other hand, Pujara’s wife, Puja Pabari, was busy scrutinizing her father-in-law’s health reports, who had been a victim of heart disease. Arvind Pujara was hospitalized following an unusual increase in his heart beat.

However there is nothing serious on his health and he is completely alright now. Unfortunately Arvind Pujara had to miss the live pictures of his son’s brilliant knock in the longest version of the game.

“I have been hearing people praise my son from across the world. It’s very heartening if anybody had any doubt about his batting it’s all cleared. I will go home watch the replays,” Arvind said from the beds of the hospital.

“His century today was under the cloud of his dad and coach being subjected to surgery. His focus never wavered and his work ethic did not suffer;” Pujara’s family friend said.

Arvind Pujara is not only a loveable father to Cheteshwar Pujara but also a mentor to him in the game from his childhood. “Whatever I am today is all thanks to my father. He has worked very hard for me, sacrificed so much for me;” Pujara once said.
