Virat Kohli batted really well: Cheteshwar Pujara
“He [Kohli] batted really well. He is someone who has been scoring lots of runs in all formats. It’s always good to see him score the runs. I am very sure he will be pleased with this pink-ball hundred.”
“It’s motivating to see a packed crowd supporting us. I think Test cricket is still alive and this was one of the occasions which will boost Test cricket,” Pujara said.
“As players, we enjoy this atmosphere. When we are fielding, when we are batting we are always concentrating on the next ball. However, the bowlers need a lot of support and when we are fielding and the moment the crowd starts supporting us, the bowlers are always charged up.
“Although the game might not go on till Day 4, it’s a good experience. I am sure the crowd is also enjoying this momentous occasion.”
“I thought the light and pink ball had a role to play. As a batsman, it is not easy to pick the short balls, especially at the kind of pace our bowlers have bowled. It’s not easy. Their batters, as far as I know, haven’t even played any 1st-class games with the pink ball. So it’s not easy,” Pujara said.
