Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar complimented Cheteshwar Pujara for his outstanding performance in Australia and playing a key role in India’s victory.
Sachin Tendulkar said, ‘Brilliant. The team really did very well. The way India did in Australia, it was fantastic. It is difficult to say important momentum, but Cheteshwar Pujara performs unmatched. Their contribution in them was underestimated. The bowlers also performed spectacularly. But, somewhere it was Pujara who laid a solid foundation for winning, whose other batsmen also took advantage and scored.
Virat scored runs in the second Test. Ajinkya Rahane did important partnerships. Rishabh Pant, Ravindra Jadeja showed good game Mayank Agarwal did a fantastic start. Despite this, if I want to keep a finger on someone’s contribution, then it is the contribution of Pujara and the fast bowlers.
Test match batting at its best by Pujara. @cheteshwar1 has been the difference between the 2 teams for me. To be able to bat for such long periods of time is a testament to his concentration and understanding of the game. #INDvAUS pic.twitter.com/7GJmJieOAk

“Jaspreet Bumrah, Mohammad Shami, Ishant Sharma, Kuldeep Yadav, Ashwin, Jadeja and Umesh Yadav all performed well,” said Tendulkar on the Indian bowling attack. He said that the level of fast bowlers has not improved overnight. He said that besides all the information about food drinking, training methods, better fitness, any information available immediately, all these factors helped.
