2nd Test, Mumbai: Cheteshwar Pujara notches up back to back Test tons against England

It was a classical Test knock by Cheteshwar Pujara in days when playing with a good technique, in testing conditions, has almost become obsolete. And it was not without its share of drama, when on 94, Pujara hit a shot off Graeme Swann and it looked to have come off Alastair Cook's boot straight to the fielder at short mid-wicket.

Mumbai: He is fast making a name as the 'New Wall' of Team India and rightly so. Cheteshwar Pujara scored his third century in Test matches and second in consecutive games to lead India's charge against England on a spin friendly track in Mumbai's Wankhede stadium. His hundred came off 248 balls in trying pitch conditions as well as circumstances.

The youngster is yet to be dismissed by England's bowlers in the series - he is 350 plus and going strong. (Read match report from Day 1 here)
