South African cricket team’s best fast bowler Dale Steyn believes that Cheteshwar Pujara, the experienced Test specialist batsman of the Indian cricket team, has lost another part of his game by cutting back on you.
Let us tell you that Cheteshwar Pujara had a very disappointing performance against the New Zealand cricket team in the final match of the ICC World Test Championship.
Against New Zealand, he scored 8 runs in 54 balls in the first innings and then could only score 15 runs in the second innings facing 80 balls.
In such a situation, the Indian cricket team lost the match by 8 wickets. Dale Steyn says that I remember from my memory that Cheteshwar Pujara was playing cricket in the best way with his feet.
His feet and eyes well under the ball but I can remember him doing some magical cut shots and back foot drives. It may happen that these pitches are a bit fast and not as quick as Indian wickets.
He has played very beautiful balls under his eyes through the covers. This is the best part of the game which I think he has lost. The shot he is playing in today’s time, he was in a much better position than a few years ago.
Maybe he’d get too high on the back foot and punch him through the cover. But he has not been able to put that kind of footwork and the ball on his eyes properly in the few matches against New Zealand and even earlier, so I think he has lost this part of his game.
Let us tell you that this South African fast bowler Dale Steyn has bowled a lot to Cheteshwar Pujara in his time. India enjoyed a good competition between these two players during the 2013-14 tour of South Africa.
In which this Indian batsman played an innings of 153 runs in Johannesburg because Dale Steyn could not succeed in taking a single point in that innings. Dale Steyn said that after that tour he saw him here and today this deficiency has come to the fore.
Been playing very good cricket in the last few years. But now he has forgotten or lost a part of cricket for the last one or two years. In such a situation, they will have to focus a lot on this condition and they will also have to work very hard.
