One of the toughest pitches I’ve played on: Pujara

One of the toughest pitches I've played on

Cheteshwar Pujara admitted that the pitch at the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg was the toughest he’d ever played on. India’s No.3 scored an unyielding 50 off 176.

“This is one of the toughest pitches I’ve played on,” Pujara said after Stumps on Day 1. “And as we saw, it was difficult to score some runs, especially in the first session. It was difficult to rotate the strike. It has a lot of bounce, it has seam movement. And there is enough pace now. So we had to work hard to score runs, but the total we have, I think it is as good as scoring 300 on any wicket. As we saw, we got a wicket, and if we bowl well, I think we’ll get them out. I would say it was a good day for us.”

“The total we have (187) I think it is as good as scoring 300 on any wicket. As we saw, we got a wicket, and if we bowl well, I think we’ll get them out. I would say it was a good day for us. So if we bowl well I think we have a very good chance, and I am very hopeful that we have enough runs on this wicket.”
