Cheteshwar Pujara speaks about the upcoming WTC final
Indian ace batsman Cheteshwar Pujara recently opened up about the grand final which is coming their way. 33-year-old Pujara stated that it Team India’s dream to win the first WTC finals and create history with that achievement. Pujara stated that WTC can be considered as the World Cup of Test match cricket. He added that the “Down Under” win against Australia in 2018 was the most special win for team India in recent times.
“It’s a dream for all of us because ICC WTC Final is indeed the World Cup of Test format and we all would like to win this trophy. Any tour of Australia is always a big challenge and very important for us. In that sense, the 2018 win was the most special.
And then, of course, our last series win was also very special because the team was relatively weak as some of the senior players were not there and some of them were injured and not available for all the matches. As a team, it was a huge achievement and personally, it was very satisfying,” said Pujara as quoted by The Hindustan Times.
“Fortunately for me, whatever I had planned for those tours did click. Australia is one of the best teams. Their bowling attack is one of the best in world cricket and doing well against them gives you some pride but you can’t be sitting on past laurels. You have to start afresh for a new challenge,” concluded Pujara
