Cheteshwar Pujara is one of the finest batsmen of the present times and he has contributed a lot for the Indian cricket as well. However, nobody expects him to bowl, leave alone the match, not even in the nets but recently he surprised everyone with his bowling.
Cheteshwar Pujara is presently playing in the Ranji Trophy and he is representing Saurashtra. On Friday in a match against Uttar Pradesh, Cheteshwar Pujara brought an end to UP’s innings by taking the wicket of Mohit Jangra on the second day. What surprised everyone was the manner in which Pujara celebrated his wicket because he is not one of those who react much but he ran a short sprint and then punched the air to show his happiness.
Pujara who has played 75 Test Matches and 5 ODIs for the country took to Instagram and posted this beautiful moment with the caption, “The day when I changed my Batsman status to an All-rounder 😂😂”.

Just to inform, Pujara has bowled only six deliveries in his whole International career.
While Pujara was ecstatic regarding his wicket, his teammate Shikhar Dhawan used this as a moment to troll him by saying that he should also run fast between the wickets just as he ran the sprint. He also congratulated Pujara for his wicket and wrote, “Bhai kabhie itne tez sprint running karte waqt bhi maar liya kar😉🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣. Well bowled waise 😂😂😂😂.”
Another colleague of Pujara and Indian cricketer R Ashwin also congratulated him and asked him to bowl more as he wrote, “Incredible!! It’s time to bowl more”.
Great going Pujara!
