Mumbai: Every time Chesteshwar Pujara completes his fifty, a century is always on the cards . The story of this 25-year-old was no different versus West Indies at Wankhede where he hit the three-figure mark for the fifth time in his career on Friday. India were 328/4 with a first innings lead of 146 against a hapless West Indies.

Update: Pujara's innings was brought to an end on 113 by Shane Shillingford, his fifth of the innings. India were 354/5, leading West Indies by 172.

Batting alongside Sachin Tendulkar - in his 200th and final Test, Pujara had the best seat in the stadium as his legendary partner departed after scoring 74 classy runs. Once Tendulkar fell, Pujara did his best to keep the party going in the stands. With three fifties to his name, the Saurashtra batsman shifted gears and kept the pressure up against West Indies.
