# Pujara (204) has recorded his second double hundred in Tests – his first was an unbeaten 206 against England at Ahmedabad in November 2012. He became the second Indian player after Vinod Kambli to register two double hundreds in first eleven Tests

# Pujara has reached 1,000 runs in 18 innings, totalling 1017 at an average of 67.80 – the second fastest in terms of innings by an Indian player, next only to Vinod Kambli (14).
