Former Indian Cricketer Warns Pujara to Keep an Eye on Kohli

India’s Test specialist batsman Cheteshwar Pujara is not having a good time as he got himself run-out again in the second Test at Lord’s.

Cricket news: Pujara’s struggle continues as he got run-out again after a horrendous mix-up with Kohli

After having a poor county stint, Pujara was dropped in the first Test at Edgbaston, but was included in the squad for the second Test at the iconic Lord’s Cricket Ground.

However his stay at the crease was not a happy one as he got run-out for just one run and it was a complete waste of a precious wicket.

Pujara almost came in as an opener as Murali Vijay was bowled out by James Anderson in the fifth ball of the innings.

He was seeing off the deliveries well but soon the disaster struck as he played a straight length delivery from Anderson to point and decided to take a single.

Fast runner Virat Kohli responded at the start but soon stopped and turned back. It was too late for Pujara to go back to safety and he gave up.

Mohammed Kaif, the former Indian cricketer who was known for his swiftness between the wickets, tweeted about the incident saying that one cannot blame Kohli but warned Pujara to keep his eye on the Indian skipper the next time.

Pujara’s string of getting run-out continues as this is the third time in six innings, he got out in the similar fashion.

In January while playing against South Africa at Centurion, he created the record of becoming the first Indian batsman to get run-out twice in a single Test match.

In the first innings he was dismissed on the first ball as he tried to steal a run by placing the ball in the mid-on region while Lungi Ngidi’s direct throw broke the stumps.

While in the second innings he got out on 19 from 47 balls from a joint effort as he tried to sneak the third run with partner Parthiv Patel.
