“My dream is to win a WTC Final,” Cheteshwar Pujara says ahead of India’s 100th test.


Cheteshwar Pujara has had a stellar 13-year career with India and will play his 100th Test on Friday in Delhi.

Cheteshwar Pujara, India’s veteran batter, said he never imagined he’d be playing his 100th Test match when he began his career, and he hopes to lift the ICC World Test Championship trophy for his country. Pujara has had a stellar 13-year career with India and will play his 100th Test on Friday in Delhi. The second Test of the series will be held from February 17 to 21 at Delhi’s Arun Jaitley Stadium. Since December 2017, Delhi has hosted its first Test. India leads the Border-Gavaskar Trophy series 1-0.

“I never imagined playing a hundred Test matches when I first started playing cricket and then made my (Test) debut. It’s always about being in the moment and not looking too far ahead for me. So, before this series began, I thought, and that’s when I realised I’d be playing my hundredth Test match. You will always have ups and downs in your career, and you must fight through them “In the pre-match press conference on Thursday, Cheteshwar Pujara stated.

To maintain their lead in the Test rankings and move closer to qualifying for the World Test Championship final in June, India must win the second Test against Australia in Delhi, which begins on Friday. India must win the series 3-1 or 3-0 to qualify for the final.

“There is much more to be done. I am definitely pleased and excited to play my hundredth Test match. However, we are also playing an important series. So, hopefully, we will win this Test match and then go on to win another Test match, ensuring our qualification for the WTC final. My dream is for the Indian team to win a WTC final, which did not happen in the previous final. But, hopefully, once we qualify, we will be able to move forward “he added.
