Cheteshwar Pujara is currently out of the Indian test team. Once referred as the new wall for India in test cricket, he has been left out from the team. In his place, youngsters are given opportunity.

Recently, Cheteshwar Pujara decided to play county cricket in England. He is part of Sussex in LV Insurance County Championship. In his very first match of this year, he scored a double century for the team in time of crisis. He received support from the captain on the non striker end who scored 243 runs.

It was an wonderful display of batting by Cheteshwar Pujara which substantially helped Sussex to draw the match.
