Ahmedabad: Nov 16, 2012

 

India batsman Cheteshwar Pujara slammed his second century against England at Ahmadabad on Friday.

 
Pujara scored 14 boundaries to reach his second ton in 190 balls during the first session on the second day of the match.
 
Earlier, on day one Indian opener Virender Sehwag ended his two years drought of centuries with a blistering ton against England at Ahmadabad on Thursday.
 
Sehwag scored 117 runs, smashing 15 boundaries and one six in his knock as he reached his 23rd ton.
 

Giving Pujara company was comeback man Yuvraj Singh on a dry Sardar Patel track which has already shown signs of assisting the slow bowlers.

 

Off-spinner Graeme Swann did the damage for the visitors, scalping all the four wickets that fell today, and pegged India back to some extent after the roaring start Sehwag provided to the team.

 

Sachin Tendulkar (13) and Virat Kohli (19) could not capitalise on the 134-run partnership for the first wicket between Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir (45).
